[2] Greek Anthology 6.174.7-8 (generally ascribed to Antipater of Sidon), already at alpha 3988, three women dedicate to Athena their spinning and weaving instruments; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 12-13); (vol. II, 37-38); and further excerpts from this epigram at alpha 3750, eta 190, kappa 1400, mu 1135, and tau 38. Gow and Page grant some doubt (ibid., 37), while attributing this epigram to Antipater of Sidon; see alpha 3750 note. Gow and Page follow (vol. I, 13) the Anthologia Palatina (AP) and the Anthologia Planudea in reading ei(/leq' ('chose'), whereas the Suda, following the AP scribe designated C (the Corrector), transmits h)/qel' ('wanted').
