[1] cf. scholia on Aristophanes, Wasps 836 and Birds 436; similar glosses in other lexica. See also iota 550.
[2] cf. Greek Anthology 6.299.2 (Phanias), quoted further at theta 429. On this epigram, a dedication of food and wine to Hermes and Aphrodite, see Gow and Page (vol. I, 163), (vol. II, 471-472), and further excerpts at delta 1548 and sigma 1328. Gow and Page note (vol. I, 163) that here the Suda follows the Anthologia Palatina (AP) in reading i)pne/sta, a form which is not otherwise attested. However, they adopt (ibid.) a suggestion from the AP scribe designated C (the Corrector) in reading i)pneu/ta and so concomitantly accept Toup's (J.O. Toup, English classical scholar, 1713-1785) proposed emendation of i)pni/ta, baked in the oven; cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 471) and Paton (460-461). For fqo/is, see phi 507.
[3] Abridged from Harpokration s.v., an entry generated by Lycurgus fr. 75 Conomis (and citing Pherecrates' comedy of this name); also Photius and Hesychius; cf. mu 10.
