[1] = Synagoge; Photius, Lexicon kappa1190 Theodoridis; cf. Etymologicum Gudianum 353.13.
[2] The words 'lip knocked off' occur as such in Aristophanes, Acharnians 459 (web address 1). Adler prints kuli/keion ('cuppish thing') although some mss. offer the preferable kuli/kion ('little cup'); the original, however, reads kotuli/skion ('little beaker'). See also alpha 3343.
[3] A phrase unattested elsewhere, but cf. Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.2A [1.3 Kaibel] for "cup-tending discussions" (e)pikuliki/wn lo/gwn).
[4] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler suggested Aelian.)
[5] Greek Anthology 6.190.6-7 (Gaetulicus); see also sigma 958. Note that qe/essin in the Greek text of this quotation is a misprint for que/essin ('sacrifices'), as found in the texts of the Anthology and sigma 958.
