Pindar fr. 265 Snell-Maehler (in Aelian Varia Historia 9.15)
λέγεται δὲ κἀκεῖνο πρὸς τούτοις, ὅτι ἄρα ἀπορῶν ἐκδοῦναι τὴν θυγατέρα, ἔδωκεν αὐτῆι προῖκα τὰ ἔπη τὰ Κύπρια. καὶ ὁμολογεῖ τοῦτο Πίνδαρος.
In addition to these (stories), the following is also told: as he (Homer) did not have the resources to marry off his daughter, he gave to her as her dowry the poem Cypria. And Pindar attests this.
