[2] Greek Anthology 7.204.3-4 (Agathias Scholasticus), an epitaph for the poet's pet partridge (which actually includes not the headword verb itself but a compound of it); cf. eta 513, theta 15. See further quotes from this epigram at alpha 2985 and mu 715.
[3] Greek Anthology 7.27 [not Adler's repetition of 204].4 (Antipater of Sidon); cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 16); Gow and Page (vol. II, 44-45); and further excerpts from this epigram at alpha 1708, alpha 2147, iota 492, and sigma 1129. As it pertains to this epigram, Gow and Page find the Suda's preceding gloss on ai)qu/sswn as "lighting up" to be incorrect; citing Sappho fr. 2.7 (cf. Lobel and Page) they stress instead that the meaning is confined to setting in motion (vol. II, 44).
