[1] For this adverb (and preposition) see already mu 719.
[2] For Alexander, see generally alpha 1121 (etc.). "Black" Kleitos does not have his own Suda entry; kappa 1768 is a homonym. As regards this quotation, it has been recently studied by Andrea Favuzzi ('Alessandro e Clito', Histos 8 (2014) 320-9, who: (1) proposes the attractive emendation 'flank' (lapa/rhn) for the transmitted, repeated lo/gxhn; (2) endorses and develops Bernhardy's view that the quotation is continued by one which appears under omicroniota 178 (q.v.); and (3) finds both linguistic and substantive grounds for attributing the consolidated result to Aelian.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler attributes it to Aelian.)
