[1] cf. generally alpha 4438, alpha 4447.
[2] Greek Anthology 7.21.3-4 (Simias of Thebes); cf. alpha 4677 and beta 327. On this epigram, an epitaph for Sophocles, see Gow and Page (vol. I, 178), (vol. II, 513-514), and another extract at kappa 1272. As Gow and Page note (ibid.), scholars have debated the ascription of the epigram to Simias of Thebes--evidently Socrates's follower and interlocutor appearing in the Phaedo. The ethnic was in fact inserted into the Anthologia Palatina (AP) by the AP scribe designated J (the Lemmatist); cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 178). For their part, Gow and Page find that the attribution to the Theban is unlikely and that this epigram is probably the work of Simias of Rhodes (vol. II, 514).
[3] Procopius, Secret History 1.11: about Antonina, wife of Belisarius. Quotations from this passage continue at mu 306 and epsilon 165.
