Dear Rodney,
The notation ex par means that, in the judgment of the editor, the extra item
(vis-a-vis MT) comes from one or more parallel passages.  In his Text
History, to which Wevers makes reference, he supplies some 35 parallel
passages (list 30), most of which include SHMERON. E.g. 4.2, 4.40 etc.
Whether the ex par plus was added by the translator or was already in his
parent text, Wevers' note does not make explicit.
