I have revised my section of Sappho's influence to refer to what is clearly an echo of her poetry in Sophocles's Antigone.  I also briefly discuss the fact that because Antigone is a funereal wedding song it is all but certain that there are many more echos of Sappho in it but that cannot today be detected because of how little of her wedding songs survive.
