[1] Accusative singular of r(uth/r (cf. rho 317 and under rho 320); similarly glossed in Photius and other lexica; evidently quoted from somewhere. In this sense, the headword is related to e)ru/w (A) in LSJ; in the second sense, it is related to e)ru/w (B).
[2] Quotation (and individual) unidentifiable.
[3] cf. rho 319.
[4] Greek Anthology 6.37.4 (author unknown). Find another extract from this epigram at alpha 767.
[5] Greek Anthology 6.274.4 (Perses), reading *tisi/dos instead of ti\ ei)=dos. On this epigram, a giving of thanks after childbirth, see Gow and Page (vol. I, 156) and (vol. II, 448-449). The goddess to whom the dedication is made is not named, but Artemis is a distinct possibility, as 'Eilethuia' is one of her cult-titles; cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 448).
