[2] Greek Anthology 7.223.3-4.(Thyillus), an epitaph for a votary of Kybele; cf. Page (96-98). As Page notes (97), here both the Anthologia Palatina and the Anthologia Planudea transmit ku/likas (thus, "three cups"); however, Page follows (ibid.) the Suda in reading the accusative singular ("sipping the same cup thrice"). On the Phrygian goddess Kybele, see kappa 2586.
