[1] Aristophanes, Peace 496 (web address 1 below), preceded here by comment from a scholium to the line.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler attributes it to Aelian but does not provide any citation.) Note that Parisinus 2626 (Adler's A), which is one of the oldest manuscripts and generally reliable, has the variant tou=ton (accusative singular) for tou/tou (genitive singular) in the other mss. If A's reading is correct, the translation would be: "when caught out being ill-disposed, this man was driven off with his wife and children".
