[2] Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 289-291, with scholion; cf. pi 2940.
[3] Greek Anthology 6.124.3 (Hegesippus), the dedication of a shield to Athena; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (104) and vol. II (299); cf. further extracts from this epigram at alpha 656, alpha 1281, and tau 594. The allusion in this excerpt is to the dedicated shield. Gow and Page read (vol. I, 104) polla\ (thus, often dust-covered) for a)lla\ and the Doric form kekonime/na instead of the Suda's transmitted Attic/Ionic dialect form kekonime/nh.
[4] Quotation unidentifiable, though the 'three holy youths' (from the Book of Daniel) are copiously mentioned in Christian literature; in the Suda see beta 11, pi 3195, pi 3223, psi 170. For o)/sprion, see omicron 706.
