Note regarding Flute-players:
The guild of flute-players was from very early times a large and wealthy one, as they attended most of the sacrificial functions and games, and as a rule supplied the music at funerals. They were not only well paid but treated with great respect. Their annual festival when they perambulated the City was on June 13.
