Notes:
The primary headword must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps the Greg. Naz. passage quoted below, though not necessarily; there are numerous other possibilities.
[1] Synesius, Epistle 95 (233b).
[2] Greek Anthology 6.147.1 (Callimachus); a man's dedication on behalf of his wife who has, presumably, recovered from an illness; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 63) and (vol. II, 180-181).
[3] Gregory of Nazianzus PG 35.928a.
[4] Quotation unidentifiable in this precise form, though its vocabulary is common in Christian writings.
