*(odou= parou/shs th\n a)trapo\n zhtei=s: to\ lego/menon. *)aristofa/nhs *)anagu/rw|: o(/rmou paro/ntos, th\n a)trapo\n katerru/hn. kai\ o(dw=|: bi/w|, e)/rgw|, pi/stei. *daui/d: kai\ e)n o(dw=| a(martwlw=n ou)k e)/sth.
The first paragraph of this entry is also in Photius (omicron37 Theodoridis), from Aelius Dionysius (omicron4); see also Appendix Proverbiorum 4.12 and other paroemiographers.
[1] Photius has 'a saying'. Theodoridis notes that Dindorf inserted the Suda's definite article, though he himself does not follow suit.
[2] Aristophanes fr. 47 Kock (and K.-A.). The noun here is not the headword phrase's o(dou=; it is transmitted as o(/rmou, though some would emend to oi)/mou ("path").
[3] From epsilon 1386. The part of the entry, from o(dw=| on, is lacking in manuscripts AFG; manuscripts V and M have it in different places. Adler regards it as an interpolation.
[4] Psalm 1.1 LXX.
