[1] Very similar glossing in the Lexicon Patmense, commenting on the occurrence of the headword in Demosthenes 18.262 (in his tendentious biography of the young Aeschines). (Why Adler objected to Wentzel's attribution of the gloss to a rhetorical source in unclear.) Hesychius omicron1083 and Photius, Lexicon omicron425 Theodoridis, both gloss the accusative plural ὀπωρώνας as an adjective ('bought for sale').
[2] Quotation (lacking in ms F) unidentifiable. (Adler attributes it, on no discernible basis, to Aelian.)
