page 65 note 1 The theory is fully argued in a paper by Tiemey M. in Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy, vol. xliv, to which Mr. W. K. C. Guthrie first drew my attention.

page 66 note 5 Of course Orphics who went so far as to be complete vegetarians would to some extent set themselves apart from other men, since a meat meal was a normal consequence of a sacrifice to the Olympian gods. Much is made of this peculiarity in the Middle Comedy, though there it is always in connexion with Pythagoreans. (Cf. Diels-Franz, Fragm. Vors. 5 i. 479). If Hip polytus was a vegetarian, hunting was a curious hobby for him, and, as has often been pointed out, βορ⋯ς κορεσθε⋯ς, 112, implies a meat meal.

page 67 note 5 Guthrie, op. cit., pp. 49, 50. The most significant piece of evidence is the statement of Conon that in his time (the age of Augustus) women were still excluded from the precinct of Orpheus (Kern, Test. 39 and 115), just as according to legend they were excluded from his mysteries. But can this outweigh the silence of Plato and of Comedy?.

page 69 note 3 The dates of the Stheneboea and Phoenix are not known; the former was earlier than 423, the latter than 425. It is not unlikely that our Hippolytus, as the most refined, is also the latest of these plays.
