    • 1873, W. K. Sullivan, “Introduction”, in On the Manners and Customs of the Ancient Irish, volume I, page cccclxxxviii:
      The early Greek Trigonon, like its progenitor the Egyptian harp, appears to have had no fore-pillar; small Trigona were, however, made at some subsequent but unascertained time, with a fore-pilar and a very small sound box.
    • 1976, Hesperia, page 57, column 2:
      Other contemporary representations of trigona show considerable variation in the angle at which the strings are set and in the position of the hands.
    • 1999, Thomas J. Mathiesen, “III. Musical instruments”, “Chordophones”, “Psalteria”, “Trigonon and sambuke”, in Appolo’s Lyre: Greek Music and Music Theory in Antiquity and the Middle Ages, Lincoln and London: University of Nebraska Press, →ISBN, page 277:
      Of the two varieties of closed trigona, one is essentially like the open trigonon but with a post running parallel to the strings from the tip of the base arm to the tip of the soundbox.
    • 1999, Jon Solomon, “Ptolemy Harmonics”, “Book III”, in Mnemosyne: Bibliotheca Classica Batava, Leiden, The Netherlands: Koninklijke Brill, published 2000, →ISBN, page 151:
      It seems to me also that to invoke the gods with certain kinds of music and melody, for instance, with both hymns and auloi or Egyptian trigona, shows that we are eager for them to hear our prayers with a gentle temper.
