[1] From a scholion on Aristophanes, Knights 132, where the headword (again at 138) occurs: web address 1. All three individuals mentioned appear to have been populist Athenian politicians in the period between the decline of Pericles (d. 429 BCE) and the ascendancy of Kleon (below). For Eukrates see also sigma 1257 (and alpha 3069). [The transmitted phrase ui(e\ *)aspasi/a makes no sense: Aemilius Portus ventured to emend it to ui(o\s *)aspasi/as "son of Aspasia." Ms M (notable for scholarly emendations) contains a note bringing attention to the problem.]
[2] From a scholion on Aristophanes, Peace 270 or 648. For Kleon see generally kappa 1731.
[3] From a scholion on Aristophanes, Knights 133; cf. pi 2158.
