Lucian of Samosata, The Syrian Goddess 49, trans. Harold W. Attridge and Robert A. Oden, Society of Biblical Literature Texts and Translations, Graeco-Roman Religion Series (Missoula, MT: Scholars Press, 1976), pp. 52–55. Because it is composed in Ionic, rather than Lucian’s usual Attic Greek, the work is widely believed to be misattributed. Possibly it was written by Lycias of Sarasota, with whom Lucian is often confused.
