Nicolaus FGrH 90 F82. (For Nicolaus see generally nu 393.)
Jacoby classifies the quotation under "fragments without a book-number", and expresses (reasonable) doubt as to whether it can be connected with F5 (an anecdote involving a woman called Zarinaia and a eunuch). See now Andrea Favuzzi, 'Ancora sul frammento 82 Jacoby di Nicolao di Damasco', Athenaeum 102 (2014) 528-531, connecting this entry with pi 504 (q.v.).
