[2] Greek Anthology 6.115.4 (generally attributed to Antipater of Sidon), on the horns and hide of a bull killed by Philip of Macedon; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 27); (vol. II, 71-73); and further excerpts from this epigram at alpha 621, alpha 1542, delta 361, epsilon 2968, mu 580, and omicron 501. Scholars have usually (cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 72)) identified the hunter of the epigram to be Philip V of Macedon (238-179 BCE; cf. phi 355 and OCD4 s.v. Philip(3)).
