4 The earliest example quoted by A Supplement to the Oxford English Dictionary, 2 (Oxford, 1976), s.v. Lesbian, dates from 1890 and s.v. Lesbianism, from 1870. No instances of the sexual meaning can be found in the Oxford English Dictionary itself s.v. Lesbian.

6 Alexandrinus, Clemens I, Protrepticus und Paedagogus, hrsg. von Stahlin, O. (3Berlin, 1972, durchges. von U. Treu), p. xvi.

7 Stählin, op. cit. p. xxiii: ‘Seine Randnotizen sind für die Kenntnis des Altertums und das Verstandnis des Clemens fast ganz wertlos’.

8 Demonassa, the second tribad in Luc, . dial. mer. 5, comes from Corinth; in Asclep, . Anth. Pal. 5. 207 the tribads are Samian. I doubt, however, if Asclepiades' epigram can be regarded as sufficient proof that tribadism was also connected with Samos; and there is no reason to regard as homosexual, as Wilamowitz, did (Sappho und Simonides (Berlin, 1913), p. 72 n. 3), the Samian γυναῖκας…ὑπ⋯ τρυϕ⋯ς κα⋯ ϋβρεως ⋯κόλαστα ποιούσας of Plut, . quaest. gr. 54. W. Kroll in his article Lesbische Liebe (RE 12 col. 2101) is more cautious (‘vielleicht’).
