ὃν τρόπον καὶ ἐπ᾿ ὀνομάτων μεταπλασμοὶ γίνονται καθάπερ τὸ ἐρυσάρματες, τὸ λῖτα, τὸ παρὰ Σαπφοῖ αὔα, τὸ

fr. 40 Athen. 4. 174f (i 392 Kaibel)
τούτοις δὲ καὶ οἱ Κᾶρες χρῶνται ἐν τοῖς θρήνοις, εἰ μὴ ἄρα καὶ ἡ Καρία Φοινίκη ἐκαλεῖτο, ὡς παρὰ Κορίννῃ καὶ Βακχυλίδῃ ἔστιν εὑρεῖν.
fr. 41 Schol. Ar. Av. 1536 (p. 273s. White)
Εὐφρόνιος (fr. 27 Strecker)· ὅτι Διὸς θυγάτηρ ἡ Βασίλεια, καὶ δοκεῖ τὰ κατὰ τὴν ἀθανασίαν αὕτη οἰκονομεῖν, ἣν ἔχει καὶ παρὰ Βακχυλίδῃ ἡ Ἀθηνᾶ, τῷ Τυδεῖ δώσουσα τὴν ἀθανασίαν.
fr. 42 Schol. Pind. Ol. 1. 40a (i 30 Drachmann)
ὁ δὲ Βακχυλίδης τὸν Πέλοπα τὴν Ῥέαν λέγει ὑγιάσαι †καθεῖσαν διὰ λέβητος† (ἐγκαθεῖσαν πάλιν τῷ λέβητι ci. Bergk).
fr. 39 Apollonius Dyscolus, Adverbs
As metaplasms 1 occur in nouns, e.g. ἐρυσάματες, ‘drawing chariots’, λῖτα, ‘linen cloth’, Sappho’s αὔα, ‘dawn’ (175) and Bacchylides’ πυργοκέρατα,
tower-horned 2 . . .
fr. 40 Athenaeus, Scholars at Dinner (on the γίγγρας, a small Phoenician pipe)
The Carians use these in their laments, unless of course the name Phoenice was being applied to Caria, 1 as one may find it in Corinna (686) and Bacchylides.
fr. 41 Scholiast on Aristophanes, Birds (‘unless Zeus gives you Princess for your wife’)
According to Euphronius, 1 this is because Princess is the daughter of Zeus; and she seems to look after business connected with immortality, the responsibility of Athena in Bacchylides, where she intends to give immortality to Tydeus. 2
fr. 42 Scholiast on Pindar, Ol. 1. 26 (‘when Clotho took Pelops from the pure cauldron’)
Bacchylides says that it was Rhea who restored Pelops 1 by lowering him (again?) into the cauldron.

- 2Perhaps acc. sing.: cf. Pindar’s ‘high-horned rock’.
- 1I.e. unless the pipe was in fact Carian.
- 1Identity unknown; perhaps the 3rd c. b.c. poet.
- 2See ‘Apollodorus’ 3. 6. 8: she changed her mind when Tydeus disgusted her by eating the brains of his victim Melanippus.
