Notes:
Third century AD. See RE Kallinikos(1),(4); PIR2 C229; PLRE Callinicus(1); FGrH 281. Cf. gamma 132, kappa 158; usually distinguished on chronological grounds from the Callinicus mentioned in iota 435.
[1] Jacoby regards this title and 'On the Histories of Alexandria' as a single one, explicitly querying Adler's punctuation after 'Cleopatra'.
