Note:
[1] Greek Anthology 6.123.1-2 (Anyte), the dedication of a spear to Athena; cf. Gow and Page, (vol. I, 35), (vol. II, 92), and another excerpt from this epigram at eta 397. Whereas the Suda here transmits dai/dwn (dai/s, genitive plural, of torches), Gow and Page (vol. I, 35) adopt an emendation of K├╝ster: dai+/wn, so as to read blood of foes; cf. Paton (364-365).
