[3] Greek Anthology 7.196.3-4 (Meleager [Author, Myth]), an invitation to a cicada to make music; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (220) and vol. II (616-617). The beginning of this epigram is quoted at alpha 368. Gow and Page explain (ibid.) that cicadas stridulate by forcing air through vibrating thoracic membranes, not as Meleager describes here, which applies only to locusts and grasshoppers.
