[2] Quotation not identified by Adler (who cited only Callimachus: see next note), but it is Paul the Silentiary, Description of Sancta Sophia 824. The passage seems to refer to silver discs hanging in the church which were pierced by a craftsman for the purpose quoted. Bekker rendered the passage: ut confectas vitro igne elaborato cuspides exciperent (39).
[3] Likewise also, according to LSJ s.v. οὐρίαχος (web address 1) at Callimachus, fr.anon. 50 Schneider.
