Fragment #2 — Dionysus Halicarn, Rom. Antiq. i. 68: According to Arctinus, one Palladium was given to Dardanus by Zeus, and this was in Ilium until the city was taken. It was hidden in a secret place, and a copy was made resembling the original in all points and set up for all to see, in order to deceive those who might have designs against it. This copy the Achaeans took as a result of their plots.
Fragment #3 —
Scholiast on Euripedes, Andromache 10:
The Cyclic poet who composed the “Sack” says that Astyanax was
also hurled from the city wall.
Fragment #4 — Scholiast on Euripedes, Troades 31: For the followers of Acamus and Demophon took no share — it is said — of the spoils, but only Aethra, for whose sake, indeed, they came to Ilium with Menestheus to lead them. Lysimachus, however, says that the author of the “Sack” writes as follows: `The lord Agamemnon gave gifts to the Sons of Theseus and to bold Menestheus, shepherd of hosts.’
Fragment #5 — Eustathius on Iliad, xiii. 515: Some say that such praise as this (1) does not apply to physicians generally, but only to Machaon: and some say that he only practised surgery, while Podaleirius treated sicknesses. Arctinus in the “Sack of Ilium” seems to be of this opinion when he says:
(ll. 1-8) `For their father the famous Earth-Shaker gave both of them gifts, making each more glorious than the other. To the one he gave hands more light to draw or cut out missiles from the flesh and to heal all kinds of wounds; but in the heart of the other he put full and perfect knowledge to tell hidden diseases and cure desperate sicknesses. It was he who first noticed Aias’ flashing eyes and clouded mind when he was enraged.’
Fragment #6 — Diomedes in Gramm., Lat. i. 477: `Iambus stood a little while astride with foot advanced, that so his strained limbs might get power and have a show of ready strength.’
(1) sc. knowledge of both surgery and of drugs.
