[1] Greek Anthology 6.300.7-8 (Leonidas of Tarentum); to Aphrodite, who has restored his health, Leonidas dedicates humble offerings and promises a more substantial sacrifice should she also lift him out of poverty; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 119); (vol. II, 346-347); and further excerpts from this epigram at pi 1568, upsilon 570, and psi 35. Inasmuch as Aphrodite is not customarily a healing goddess, Gow and Page find plausible (vol. II, 346) Geffcken's suggestion (120) that the sickness here is in fact the torment of love.
