[1] A careless approximation of Zosimus, Historia nova 1.6.1, who merely places this discovery in the time of Octavian/Augustus; see in context at alpha 735. Also, the second of the pair of names should be Bathyllos.
[2] From Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 1.14D (1.25 Kaibel); cf. omicron 670. See already at alpha 1817, and again sigma 1720.
