Well, actually that last bit isn't quite that plain. More likely he's saying
here that there isn't another (who is QEOS) beyond the POIHTHS corresponding
to the other (who is QEOS) who is below the POIHTHS. It appears that last
night JE was reading hUPER hON as "in addition to" without noticing the
likely correspondence with the preceding hUPO. There is a hETEROS but not an
ALLOS.
