[1] From 'FGrHist 115', Adler initially and tentatively suggested, i.e. Theopompus of Chios; however, none of his extant fragments match this unidentifiable (and textually suspect: au)to/n needs emendation to either au)tw|= or au)tw=n) phrase. In her consolidated addenda and corrigenda Adler altered the suggested attribution to FGrH 151, an anonymous Alexander-history
[2] Again, unidentifiable. (Adler suggested Symeon Metaphrastes.)
