[1] From a scholion on Aristophanes, Wealth [Plutus] 602, where the headword occurs (in the accusative). Adler notes that ms F has additional material: kai\ *)aristei/dhs: a)lla\ gunaikw=n me\n mi/a su/ssitos h)=n h( mh/thr "and Aristides [writes]: 'but of women there was a single fellow-diner, the mother, [of children only a brother]'." This is a quotation from Aelius Aristides' Funeral Elegy for Eteoneus.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. Bernhardy suspected the verb protraph=nai. On e)kqeia/zw "honor as a god," see epsilon 448.
