[2] Greek Anthology 6.294.5-6 (Phanias). Apparently upon retirement, Kallon dedicates to Hermes representative items (plural su/mbol', not the Suda's singular) from his pedagogue's toolkit: the walking stick, a slipper, his cap, the bull's-hide whip, the lash, and the fiery cane. On the role of a "pedagogue," see pi 1844.
