Adler supplies no note, and was presumably unclear whether any particular passage in St Paul's Letters had generated this entry. The theoretical possibilities include Romans 1.19, 1 Timothy 6.4, Philippians 1.15, Titus 3.3, Galatians 5.21 (pl.). Theodoridis (below) LXIX-LXXIII identifies not only this entry but also numerous others -- alpha 1056, alpha 4245, alpha 4281, alpha 4284, gamma 378, delta 1343, epsilon 3007, epsilon 3881, theta 186, kappa 150, kappa 160, kappa 608, pi 1725, pi 2038, upsilon 19, upsilon 290, phi 572, psi 99 -- as deriving from Gennadius of Constantinople's fragmentary commentary on Romans.
cf. generally phi 509, phi 510.
