[1] Plato, Republic 2.358D (web address 1), with scholion on 2.367D.
[2] Aelian fr. 179 Domingo-Forasté (176 Hercher); quoted more fully at sigma 1191.
[3] Küster indicated anacoluthon here. The participle in the dative singular was corrected to dual in the Milan edition (1499); other emendations have been suggested. For the last part, see epsilon 1052. Asmus accepted this quotation as fr.177 of Damascius, Life of Isidore = now fr. 315 Zintzen. Adler thought Aelian more likely. Athanassiadi accepts the attribution to Damascius (her fr.117C) and applies the passage to Horapollon and Heraiscus (cf. omega 159).
