|Palaeographical information||Written in the right margin. The scholium is preceded by a signe-de-renvoi, which links it to the phrase 'ἀπο ἰτάλου βασιλέως τινὸς σικελῶν' in the main text (Thuc. 6.2.4).|
|Contextual information||The epigram is written next to Thucydides' Histories 6.2.4.|
|Comment||Kaldellis (2015: 76): 'This is a historical scholion on Thucydides’ explanation of the name Italy as coming from “Italos, some king of the Sikels. Thus was Italy named.” Tzetzes picks up from that “thus.”'
Mészáros (2013: 74, n. 25): "The source of Tzetzes was probably Apollod. II 5, 10."
