[2] Greek Anthology 7.6.3-4 (Antipater of Sidon), a memorial to Homer; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 14), (vol. II, 41), and another extract from this epigram at beta 297. The epigram is inscribed on a headless double herm (to Homer and Menander) found outside the walls of Rome, Alle Tre Fontane, in what had probably been Aelian's (Claudius Aelianus, sophist, ca. 170 – ca. 235 CE, cf. alphaiota 178) garden or study (ibid.); cf. Easterling and Knox (241). Here, the "sea-beaten dust" presumably gestures at the legendary site of Homer's tomb on the island of Ios (Barrington Atlas map 61 grid A4); cf. Gow and Page, op. cit.
[3] Mentioned in Demosthenes 23.66, cited here from Harpokration s.v.
