[2] Greek Anthology 7.191.3-4 (Archias), epitaph for a jay; cf. Gow and Page (412-413); cf. alpha 2757, alpha 271, and alpha 2742. The original has kre/casa, "plucking a musical instrument", instead of kra/casa "shouting" -- understandably, since the epigram features both musical instrument and singing.
[3] Aelian fr. 53h Domingo-Forasté (50 Hercher); cf. delta 75, upsilon 471. The original had a singular aorist subject (e)ke/leusen, "he ordered"). The excerpt uses ke/rtomos, which is a variant of the headword kerto/mios.
