[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 6.190.7-8 (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. Further excerpts from this epigram, the poet Leonidas's dedication to Aphrodite, are at alpha 1234, alpha 3086, alphaiota 392, pi 969, and psi 35.
