Notes:
[1] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 157 Zintzen (91 Asmus), 69E Athanassiadi. The hope was apparently for a pagan restoration; see Athanassiadi's note on this passage. On Marcellinus, see mu 202 (and cf. epsilon 3748).
[2] This present participle of πιστεύω , in the masculine nominative plural, is extracted from Thucydides 2.81.4; see the scholia there.
[3] Unintelligible as transmitted, since πιστότης is already the headword. This and the next fragment are lacking in manuscript F, according to Adler.
[4] Damascius fr. 57 Zintzen (26 Asmus).
