[1] The monosyllabic neuter nominative/accusative singular comparative plei=n (cf. under pi 1733) is here glossed with the uncontracted ple/on. Also in the Ambrosian Lexicon (862), according to Adler.
[2] Aristophanes, Clouds 1041.
[3] Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 1184.
[4] Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 807-8.
[5] An approximation of Aristophanes, Frogs 91 (with scholion), followed here by what precedes it (89-90). Euripides' name should be in the genitive, and 'still' should be 'other'.
