[2] Greek Anthology 6.246.1 (Philodemus or Marcus Argentarius), a dedication to Poseidon after a horse race victory; also cited, in part, at delta 1245 and kappa 1338; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 156-157) and further extracts from this epigram at sigma 1055 and psi 66. On stylistic grounds, Gow and Page maintain (vol. II, 371) that this epigram should be assigned to Argentarius.
