1 Since writing this paper I have noticed one significant exception. Wilamowitz, in 1924, in his chapter on Apollonius Rhodius in Hellenisiische Dichtung, ii, twice (pp. 244 and 246) spoke of the ram saving Phrixus by swimming (‘den er … durch das Meer nach Aia trug‘, ‘der ihn das Meer durchschwimmend nach Aia trug’). He does not quote evidence.
2 The chief published lists of representations of Phrixus are (i) Hartwig in Festschrift für Johannes Overbeck, pp. 14 ff.; (ii) Türk in Roscher's Lexikon, s.n. ‘Phrixos’, cc. 2463 ff.; (iii) Jacobsthal, Die Melischen Reliefs, p. 186, and (iv) Riemann in Brunn-Bruckmann, clvi, text to plates 779 and 780, p. 19. For representations of Helle alone, see Lesky in Wien. Stud.xlvi. 128. Professor J. D. Beazley has very kindly helped me with references, information, and criticism, and I must also thank Mr. C. T. Seltman for similar help with the coins, and my son Mr. Martin Robertson for help with the vases.
