[Orpheus], of Leibethra in Thrace (the town is below Pieria),[1] son of Oiagros and Kalliope. Oiagros was in the fifth generation after Atlas, by Alkyone, one of his daughters. He lived 11 generations before the Trojan Wars, and they say he was a student of Linos.[2] He lived for 9 generations, though some say 11. He wrote Triasms, but these are also said to be by Ion the tragedian.[3] Among them [are] the so-called Hierostolika ['Sacred Missives']; Cosmic Calls; Neoteuktika; Sacred Speeches in 24 rhapsodies, but these are said to be by Theognetos the Thessalian, or by the Pythagorean Kerkops;[4] Oracles, which are attributed to Onomakritos; Rites, though these too are attributed to Onomakritos; among these is the Concerning Cutting on Stones, entitled Eighty Stone; Deliverances, but these are said to be by Timokles the Syracusan or by Persinos the Milesian; Mixing Bowls, said to be by Zopyros; Thronismoi of the Mother and Bacchica, said to be by Nikias of Elea; Descent into Hades, said to be by Herodikos of Perinthos; Robe and Net, also said to be by Zopyros of Herakleia, though others say Bro[?n]tinos; an Onomastikon in epic hexameter, a Theogony in epic hexameter; Astronomy, Amokopia,[5] Thyepolikon, Oiothytika or Oioscopika in epic hexameter, Katazostikon, Hymns, Korybantikon, and Physika ['Writings on Nature'], which they [also] attribute to Bro[?n]tinos.

[5] Thus as transmitted -- but it was emended to Amoskopia in the Suda editio princeps, to Ammoskopia by Diels, and to Amnoskopia (or Astrokopia) by Lobeck. If Amnoskopia is correct (cf. LSJ on a related noun and verb), it could mean either literal 'sheep-watching/shepherding' or divination by means of watching sheep (so G.R.S. Mead).

of Naucratis.[1] Some write that he is a sophist of Ardyenna, [but] they are joking:[2] Ardyenna [is] a city of Phoenicia.[3] He taught in Athens under the emperor Commodus,[4] and died aged 58, having composed the following books: Onomasticon (10 books: it is a collection of different words for the same thing); informal discourses, or talks; declamations; epithalamium to Caesar Commodus; Roman Speech; Trumpet, or Musical Contest; Against Socrates; Against the People of Sinope; Panellenic [Speech]; Arcadian [Speech];[5] and so on.
On statues of Castor and [sc. the mythological] Pollux see under 'Dioscuri'.[6]

[2] Adler notes Kuster's suggested emendation of this participle to ptai/ontes ("blundering").
[3] No Phoenician city of this name is attested, and it is in any case a NW European name: Ardennes (see e.g. Strabo 4.3.5, and Barrington Atlas map 11 grid G4). Adler notes the suggested double emendation by Jonathan Toup (1713-1785) to Arados, in Syria. See also n. 5 below.
