[1] Greek Anthology 6.306.3-4 (Ariston), a list of cooking equipment dedicated to Hermes; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (42-43) and vol. II (110-111). See tau 74 for a phrase from verse 2 of this epigram; cf. further excerpts at alpha 1146, alpha 4064, beta 34, mu 11, pi 3007, tau 799, chi 620, and omega 294. Here, Gow and Page follow (vol. I, 42) the Anthologia Planudea in reading eu)/xalkon (accusative singular of eu)/xalkos, made of fine bronze) instead of the Suda's reading, which accords with the Anthologia Palatina.
