[1] cf. omicroniota 160, omicroniota 162. The present headword is presumably extracted from the first quotation given.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. Attributed to Aelian by Valckenaer, to Cassius Dio by Mai, adducing Livy 8.12 on T.Manlius Torquatus (tau 791): cui venienti seniores tantum obviam exisse constat, iuventutem et tunc et omni vita deinde aversatam eum exsecratamque. Oddly, the phrase "the youth hated him and thought him an (ill) omen" appears in Gregorius 3.70 as if a proverb.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable.
[4] Quotation (regarded by Kuster as textually corrupt) unidentifiable.
