In the Epigrams: "here the soil growing green with a flourishing branch showed all the grace of fruitful foliage."[1]

Oramnous: en Epigrammasi: enthade men chloaousa tethêloti bôlos oramnôi phullados eukarpou pasan edeixe charin.
Notes:
The unglossed headword is accusative plural of o)/ramnos, a later variant of o)ro/damnos (omicron 619). It must be quoted from somewhere, very probably from Nicander, who uses the form several times. In the quotation which follows, the word occurs in the dative singular.
