[2] Greek Anthology 5.260.2 (Paul the Silentiary); cf. delta 307. For the epithet cf. Lucian, de Syria dea 15, and delta 426 (Demeter). See further extracts from this epigram at epsilon 1658 and kappa 1273.
[3] Greek Anthology 7.39.1-3 (Antipater of Thessalonica), an epitaph for Aeschylus; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 20-21) and (vol. II, 31). For 'towered up' see again pi 3204. Gow and Page note (vol. I, 20) that here the Suda follows the Anthologia Palatina (AP) in reading the unmetrical fro/nhma (thought). They adopt (ibid.) the emendation given by the AP scribe designated C (the Corrector) and the Anthologia Planudea: fw/nhma (speech, language, vocabulary); cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 31).
