[1] Likewise in the Synagoge (tau92) and Photius (tau149 Theodoridis), and similarly elsewhere: see e.g. Hesychius (tau466) and scholia on Plato (Timaeus 25D) Apollonius Rhodius (Argonautica 4.1237), and Gregory of Nazianzus (PG 36.1249c; Lex.Greg. 174.2).
[2] Polybius 1.75.8-9, on Hamilcar (alpha 1596) in the Carthaginian Mercenary War (241 BCE). The name of the river is inserted here from 1.75.5, where it is given as the Makaras. It is best known, in fact, as the Bagradas. See also beta 421.
[3] Another version of a quotation already given at epsilon 3116, q.v.
