[2] Tentatively attributed to Damascius by Adler, and adopted as such by Zintzen (as Life of Isidore fr. 399); however, as C. Theodoridis shows in his Photius edition (vol.II p.LXXXVIII) this is actually an abridgement of Josephus, Jewish War 5.88.

[4] Aelian fr. 326 Domingo-Forasté (328 Hercher: here abridged); cf. tau 235.
