Since this usage of these terms is now the most common one, it is also followed in this book. Scholars working on philosophical and scientific texts, however, have a tendency to use “scholia” (and sometimes even “glosses”) for a commentary consisting of short notes on specific passages rather than a continuous exegesis, regardless of whether that commentary is found in the margins of a manuscript or as its only text; sometimes they even use “scholia” for a continuous commentary.
