[1] Greek Anthology 6.115.1-2 (generally attributed to Antipater of Sidon), on the horns and hide of a bull killed by Philip of Macedon; cf. omicron 501. Also see Gow and Page (vol. I, 27); (vol. II, 71-73); and further extracts from this epigram at alpha 621, alpha 1542, beta 529, delta 361, and mu 580. Scholars generally (cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 72)) identify the hunter of the epigram to be Philip V of Macedon (238-179 BCE; cf. phi 355 and OCD4 s.v. Philip(3)).
