    • 2012, Kathryn Topper, The Imagery of the Athenian Symposium, Cambridge University Press, page 7
      "Athenaeus, whose Deipnosophistae remains one of our most valuable sources of ancient testimonia about the symposium, apparently had some notion of sympotic reclining as a practice connected to luxruy and moral laxity, but the Athenians do not seem to have shared this view."
    • 1996, R. Bracht Branham and Daniel Kinney, Satyrica, University of California Press, footnote 65.1, page 59
      "Possibly a reminder of Alcibiades' late, drunken arrival in Plato's "Symposium," which had become a convention of sympotic literature."
