[1] Same glossing in Photius and elsewhere. (What the 'two ways' are is not made clear, but a)noignu/ei is otherwise unattested.)

[3] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable (Adler suggests Aelian.)
[4] Not identified by Adler, but identifiable via the TLG as coming from the Septuagint: Proverbs 31.8.
