[1] Feminine nominative singular of o)/reios (cf. omicron 540, omicron 549, omicron 550), presumably extracted from the quotation which immediately follows.

[3] Greek Anthology 6.217.9-10, attributed to Simonides (already at lambda 147) -- where however the reading is '[dedicated] to Rhea'. On this epigram, about a Gallus (cf. gamma 41, gamma 42) whose drumbeats drive away a threatening lion, see also Gow and Page vol. I (180); vol. II (517-518); and further extracts at alpha 3019, beta 473, epsilon 1196, and eta 482. The Galli were eunuch priests of the Phrygian goddess Kybele (equivalent to Minoan Rhea); cf. kappa 2586 and rho 83.
[4] Photius, Epistulae et Amphilochia 25.2 Laourdas and Westerink. For Photius the patriarch of Constantinople, see generally lambda 256.
