[1] Aristophanes, Frogs 1180 (with scholion), where the text reads ou) ga/r mou)/stin a)ll' a)kouste/a (web address 1). The Suda's version has misinterpreted mou)/stin as crasis for moi ou) e)stin instead of moi/ e)stin, thus introducing an extra negative.
[2] Aristophanes, Knights 1205 (web address 2), with scholion; cf. alpha 3206.
