[1] This is evidently a comment on Aristophanes, Frogs 13-14, where the three poets are mentioned in this order and subjected to mild ridicule. See also lambda 808 (on Lykis). On this Phrynichus (there are several) see also phi 763 and phi 766. On Amipsias see alpha 1572.
[2] For criticism in these terms (implying emotional frigidity) cf. e.g. epsiloniota 148, eta 358, theta 137, mu 1261, mu 1262, sigma 642, psi 176.
[3] Aristophanes, Birds 748-50, with minor variations. A snippet of the same passage is also quoted at gamma 310.
