Greek Original:
Ἤστην: ἀντὶ τοῦ ὑπῆρχον, δυϊκῶς. ἀδελφὼ δύο ἤστην ἡμαρτημένα. καὶ αὖθις: ἐπηρμένω τε ἤστην ἄμφω ταῖς ἐλπίσιν.
[1] The headword is imperfect of εἰμί , third person dual, illustrated by quotations from late writers for whom the dual was an archaism.
[2] The beginning of Aelian fr. 75 Domingo-Forasté (72 Hercher), already in full at eta 350; and see also eta 592. (The perfect participle after ἤστην seems to be an attempt to summarise the anecdote as a whole, but ἡμαρτημένα does not fit the grammar: read ἡμαρτημένω (ms E and or Bekker's ἠπατημένω "deceived".)
[3] Agathias, Histories 1.7; cf. kappa 58.
