[1] Greek Anthology 7.67.3-4 (Leonidas of Tarentum), Diogenes addresses Charon [Author, Myth], here abridged; for full versions see beta 114 and omicron 124; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 126) and (vol. II, 367-368). Find further extracts from this epigram at epsilon 2061, epsilon 3944, and pi 2073. On Diogenes the Cynic, the ascetic skeptical philosopher, cf. delta 1141, delta 1143, and delta 1144. On Charon, ferryman of the dead to Hades, see chi 135.
[2] Adler follows most of the mss in printing optative a)pofqi/seien, but Vaticanus 881 (T) has the infinitive, surely correctly.
