Comment Demoen (2019: 78) disagrees with Cameron about the authorship of this monostich: "The most logical explanation seems to be that the monostich, whatever its precise meaning, was not created for the occasion but was copied by J" (i.e. Konstantinos Rhodios) "from his exemplar along with the Marinus poems — in other words that it is not a scribal but a ‘traditional’ paratext."
