A marginal addition in ms. A.
[1] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as Gregory of Nazianzus, Orations 44.10 (PG 36.617); "it" is a dolphin.
[2] An approximated quotation from, again, Gregory of Nazianzus (Orations 43.62). The most significant discrepancy is that the original has the feminine accusative participle parape/mpousan ('[virginity] escorting'), not the Suda's parape/mpousi ('they escort').
