Apparatus Criticus: Textus mensuraeque secundum (1)
v. 1: Μολα ut cognomen (1)(2) (ut etiam alii citati apud (3)); ut appellatio derisa meretricium (3)(4) (ut etiam alii citati apud (3)); φουτουτρις vox Latina (fututrix) esse videtur, scripta in litteris Graecis. -s pro -x non numquam accidit in litteris scariphatis Pompeianis (V. Väänänen, Le latin vulgaire des inscriptions pompéiennes, Berlin 1959, p. 65). Ergo, ut apparet, φουτουτρις pro fututris, i.e. fututrix.
