[1] Identical glossing in Hesychius omicron1262, Etymologicum Gudianum 435.38, and ps.-Zonaras 1470.15; but see next note.
[2] Identical glossing, to this point, in the Synagoge and in Photius, Lexicon omicron499 Theodoridis, but s.v. o(rmwme/nous, i.e. masculine accusative plural form of the headword. Theodoridis endorses Naber's view that it is quoted from Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 257.
[3] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 203 Asmus. Zintzen prints this fragment in the apparatus to his fr. 331 (Athanassiadi's 127A), which is mainly taken from Photius' Epitome of the Life of Isidore, continued by the fragment found at tau 386 (tetra/gwnos) in the Suda. The subject is Agapios (see alpha 158). Photius may have paraphrased the passage, and the Suda may preserve a few of the exact words.
Epiphanius (cf. epsilon 2742), Panarion 3.437.28 contains a similar passage.
