[2] Greek Anthology 7.172.3-4 (Antipater of Sidon), on one Alcimenes, snake-bitten while trying to drive birds away from his crops; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 18-19); (vol. II, 51-52); and more extracts from this epigram at beta 308, epsilon 1287, kappa 2231, omicron 971, rho 174, chi 207, and psi 75.

[4] From Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon, where however (as Adler's apparatus notes) the first word is corrected to a)mo/qen. This is evidently because the Platonic phrase deemed to have generated the entry (Gorgias 492D, Laws 798D) is a(mo/qen ge/ poqen, "from somewhere or other".
