[1] Greek Anthology 6.14.1 (Antipater of Sidon), again at alpha 4423, three brothers dedicate hunting implements to Pan; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 11), (vol. II, 34-35), and further extracts from this epigram at delta 253 and omicron 548.
[2] cf. iota 689 and lambda 208.
[3] cf. epsilon 789, iota 75, iota 374. (This comment is unrelated to the rest of the entry; it is here simply because 'Armenians' follows the headword in alphabetical order.)
