Comment Tzetzes uses the ancient proverb 'Διὸς Κόρινθον', used for those who frequently repeat the same words, after reading the Thucydidean words "ὃν θουκυδίδης ξυνέγραψεν" for the fifth time (cf. Thuc. 2.70.4, 2.103.2, 3.25.2 and 3.88.4). The same expression appears in other Tzetzian scholia on f. 216v en f. 258r.
