[1] The headword is third person singular, imperfect, of mhxana/omai, presumably extracted from the quotation which follows; cf. mu 1019, mu 1020.
[2] Quotation (abbreviated in ps.-Zonaras) unidentifiable.
[3] This comment is probably derived from the scholia to Aristophanes, Knights 850 (as is, more manifestly, mu 1018).
[4] This adjunct has no apparent connection to the immediately preceding sentence, but seems to be an explanation of the previous quotation. It is perhaps a continuation of that quotation.
