John Tzetzes (12th c.) - PBW: Ioannes/459/
Palaeographical information Written in the left margin.
Tzetzes wrote an additional scholium to this epigram in the upper left corner of this folio, in which he repeats the correct accentuation: 'τὸ ἀρσενικ(ὸν) φρύνις φρύνιδο(ς):-'.

Luzzatto (1999: 124) on the end of v. 1: "Tzetzes, come sempre alla ricerca della chiarezza, ha scritto, subito dopo il νυ, la lettera ν, separata da esso tramite un trattino verticale: non sicuro poi che anche così le cose fossero chiare, ha aggiunto un ὡς (...) nell’interlinea sopra a νυ e subito prima del trattino verticale."
Contextual information The epigram is written next to Thucydides' Histories 8.6.4 and refers to the word 'φρύνιν' in the main text.
