[1] Sophocles, Ajax 188-189 (web address 1); this first part of the entry derives from the corresponding scholia.
[2] Two saints of this name are known: of Mopsuestia (alpha 4450 and web address 2) and of Bithynia (web address 3). The former seems to be the one in question here. Auxentius of Milan, an Arian bishop, would not be designated as a saint.
[3] Symeon Metaphrastes PG 116.481c extr. "Naked" might mean wearing only his undergarment.
