Greek Anthology 6.115.1 (generally attributed to Antipater of Sidon), on the horns and hide of a bull killed by Philip of Macedon; see at delta 361 and mu 580. See also Gow and Page (vol. I, 27); (vol. II, 71-73); and further excerpts from this epigram at alpha 621, alpha 1542, beta 529, and epsilon 2968. Scholars generally (cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 72)) identify the hunter of the epigram as Philip V of Macedon (238-179 BCE; cf. phi 355 and OCD4 s.v. Philip(3)).
Orbelos was part of the mountain-chain forming the northern boundary of Macedonia: Strabo 7.10; Barrington Atlas map 51 grid B2.
