Greek Original:
Ἀπώνατο: εὐεργετεῖτο, ὠφελεῖτο. Ἀγαθίας: ἀπώνατο οὖν τῆς προπετείας οὐκ ἐν καλῷ. περὶ Θευδέρτου λέγων τοῦ Φράγγων βασιλέως. καὶ Ἀπώνητο, ὠφελείας ἔτυχεν, ἀπήλαυσεν, ὠφελήθη. Αἰλιανός: οὐ μὴν ἀπώνητο οὐδὲν, ἀλλὰ ἐξέζεσε ζῶν κακοῖς θηρίοις, οἱ μὲν εὐλαῖς, οἱ δὲ ὅτι οὐ ταύταις, φθειρσί γε μήν.
[1] Agathias, Histories 1.4.
[2] For 'Theudertos', again at theta 300, read Theudibertos (theta 299); so Kuster.
[3] Probably extracted from the quotation which follows (but another possibility is Herodotus 1.168); and the glosses are Homeric.
