[2] According to Adler, 'Pearson' -- presumably Bishop John Pearson (1613-1686), author of Adversaria Hesychiana -- compared Theodoret (PG 80,1516bc) on Psalm 79.14 LXX. (In another context altogether, the second gloss here, mono/lukos, was according to Plutarch an epithet applied by Demosthenes to Alexander the Great.)
