78 Theodoret also, following Hippolytus, understood by "evil angels" here, not "demons," but the minsters of temporal punishment. See on Ps. lxxviii. 54, and on Jer. xlix. 14. So, too, others, as may be seen in Poli Synops., ii. col. 1113.
95 [It the "cemphus" of the text equals "cepphus" of note, then "cepphus" equals "cebus" or "cepus," which equals khboj, a sort of monkey. The "Kophim" of 1 Kings x. 22 seems to supply the root of the word. The kepfoj, however, is said to be a sea-bird "driven about by every wind," so that it is equal to a fool. So used by Aristophanes.]

127 [I omit here the suffix "Pope of Rome," for obvious reasons, He was papa of Portus at a time when all bishops were so called but this is a misleading absurdity, borrowed from the Galland ms.., where it could hardly have been placed earlier. A mere mediaeval blunder.]
133 Simon de Magistris, in his Acta Martyr. Ostiens., p. 274 adduces the following fragment in Latin and Syriac, from a Vatican' codex, and prefaces it with these words: Hippolytus wrote on the Song of Solomon, and showed that thus early did God the Word seek His pleasure in the Church gathered from among the Gentiles, and especially in His most holy mother the Virgin; and thus the Syrians, who boasted that the Virgin was born among them, translated the Commentary of Hippolytus at a very early period from the Greek into their own tongue, of which some fragments still remain, -as, for example, one to this effect on the above words.
