Ἀγρεία ἀοιδή: ἡ ἀγροικική. τὸ σκύτος ἀγρείης τ' εἴνε κατὰ πλατάνου. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι. καὶ Ἀγρεῖος, ὁ ἄγροικος, ὁ ἀμαθής. ἢ ὁ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀγροῦ. Ἀριστοφάνης Νεφέλαις: ἀγρεῖος εἶ καὶ σκαιός. ὁ ἄγροικος καὶ μέγαν πώγωνα ἔχων. καὶ αὖθις: ἄλλως τ' ἄμουσόν ἐστι ποιητὴν ἰδεῖν ἀγρεῖον ὄντα καὶ δασύν.
Notes:
[1] The headword phrase is presumably quoted from somewhere.
[2] <pan class="title">Greek Anthologypan> 6.35.2 (Leonidas of Tarentum), a rustic dedication to Pan; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (122) and vol. II (356-357); cf. further extracts from this epigram at alpha 325, alphaiota 210, gamma 73, lambda 189, rho 72, and tau 264. The plane tree of the epigram, <pan>πλάτανος pan>, is almost certainly the Old World or Asiatic Plane, Platanus orientalis, whose range extends from Asia into Greece and the eastern Mediterranean; cf. Raven (24, 70).

[4] Aristophanes, <pan class="title">Cloudspan> 655.

[6] Aristophanes, <pan class="title">Thesmophoriazusaepan> 159-160 (copied here from alpha 1633).
