Notes:
Greek Anthology 6.203.3-4 (by Lacon or Philip of Thessalonica): a lame old woman leaves her staff as a thankful gift to the Nymphs, after they heal her leg out of compassion. This epigram is quoted several times by the Suda: see lines 1-3 at gamma 428, lines 2-3 at pi 3256 and pi 883, lines 5-7 at omicroniota 88.
[1] Rather than poq' e(rpu/zousa "once [came] crawling", the text should probably read poqerpu/zousa "crawling forwards", as accepted in modern editions of the epigram. This is a Doric form of proserpu/zousa; cf. the more common poqe/rpw for prose/rpw.
