[1] From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 14.396, where the headword occurs; likewise or similarly in other lexica.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.165.5 (Phalaecus or Flaccus). See further extracts from this epigram, a dedication to Dionysus, at alpha 1721, alpha 4681, beta 140, theta 379, theta 613, iota 72, kappa 2115, kappa 2279, lambda 360, rho 223, and sigma 1193. On the epigram's attribution, see alpha 1721 note.
[3] Greek Anthology 7.8.3 (Antipater of Sidon), on the death of Orpheus, more fully at sigma 1668; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (14-15), vol. II (42), and further excerpts from this epigram at alpha 1063 and delta 1552. Orphic legends recount his control of rocks, trees, and animals, but -- albeit less characteristically than as granted here -- also over more elemental phenomena such as winds and precipitation (Gow and Page, vol. II (42)).
