Notes

  • 3.

    Above η there's a horizontal line which might be interpreted as a grave accent.

  • 4.

    Change of speaker seems to be marked by a dicolon in this line, but the possible presence of a paragraphos cannot be verified, since the beginning of the line is missing.

  • 7.

    The MSS tradition preserves ἡμᾶς instead of ἡμῖν (cf. Burnet's OCT (1901)).

    A mark above ν probably isn't a critical sign introducing a variant, but rather a circumflex with the descending part missing and mistakenly placed above ν instead of ι.
