Valerius(?) Babrius, C2 CE; OCD(4) s.v. (p.218). The Suda is an important witness to the text of Babrius, as it quotes many passages, often differing significantly from the manuscript reading.
Adler attributes this entry (repeated at chi 402) to the epitome of the biographical lexicon by Hesychius of Miletus.
[1] Babrius' meter seems to have been influenced by Latin choliambs.
