[1] Aelian fr. 252 Hercher (250a Domingo-Forasté).
Hercher and Adler (and probably Domingo-Forasté, though his text erroneously omits the word at issue) follow Kuster in emending the transmitted e)pi\ ma=llon ('all the more') to e)/ti ma=llon ('still more'). There is little to recommend this emendation, however, as e)pi\ ma=llon (sometimes written as one word, e)pima=llon) is well attested in texts as early as Herodotus (e.g. 1.94, 3.104) and Plato (Phaedo 93B, etc.), and in Aelian's day in Diogenes Laertius 1.122.9 and numerous times in Galen; cf. epsilon 2454, epsilon 2455.
