[1] Greek Anthology 6.219.2 (attributed to Antipater of Sidon), a Gallus takes shelter in a mountain cavern, there encounters a lion, but drives it away by beating his tambour; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 33); (vol. II, 84-86); and further extracts from this epigram at alpha 1510, alpha 1828, alpha 4172, epsilon 747, zeta 19, kappa 2544, sigma 299, and sigma 1723. As Roller observes (229-231), it is conceivable that Hellenistic poets were inclined to exaggerate the behavior of the Galli (cf. gamma 41, gamma 42), Phrygian goddess Kybele's (Cybele, kappa 2586) eunuch priests.
