Translation:
Of Kyme, historian, the younger [sc. one of that name].[1] He wrote the Histories of Galenos[2] in 27 books; Affairs of Corinth; On the Aleuadai;[3] and other [works].
Greek Original:
Ἔφορος, Κυμαῖος, ἱστορικός, ὁ νεώτερος. ἔγραψε τὰς Γαληνοῦ ἱστορίας ἐν βιβλίοις κζ#, Κορινθιακά, Περὶ τῶν Ἀλευαδῶν: καὶ ἄλλα.
Notes:
[1] For the (implicitly) elder historian from Kyme called Ephoros see epsilon 3930, epsilon 3953. This later (?C3 AD) and less important one, FGrH 212, is known only through the present testimonium.
[2] So the transmitted text. Adler notes that Alfred von Gutschmid (1831-1887) supposed this to be a fabula erotica; however, orthodoxy ever since the Suda editio princeps (including Jacoby) emends the name to Galienos, i.e. the Roman emperor of that name (218-268; cf. under delta 237, kappa 231, mu 1087, pi 1811, sigma 703).
[3] cf. alpha 1150.
