[1] Aelian fr. 180 Domingo-Forasté (177 Hercher), quoted more briefly at pi 2417. As Adler notes, Aelian is alluding to Croesus' words in Herodotus 1.86.4 (to\n a)\n e)gw\ pa=si tura/nnoisi proeti/mhsa mega/lwn xrhma/twn e)s lo/gous e)lqei=n).
[2] Aelian fr. 181 Domingo-Forasté (178 Hercher). Adler notes that Kuster conjectured, and ms F reads, trihme/rou. Mss AGVM read trihmoi/rou which seems meaningless. Kühn suggested trithmori/ou "a third part" (sc. of one's life). Bernhardy would regularize the grammar by adding a)\n and changing the future optative a)lla/coimi to the aorist optative a)lla/caimi (which is the reading of ms V).
