Re: Mk 8,13:
IMHO, this is a mistake of the editors.
NA26 read: 28.33.565.700.892 pc, 1241,1424,it.
This mistake was continued in the apparatus of NA27:
28.33.565.579.700.892.2427.2542 pc, 1241,1424, it

Re: Mk 8,35:
You are right that you have to reconstruct the witnesses
for apolesei here yourself. The same applies to many other
instances in the apparatus of NA26 and NA27.
I have no idea why they put in the ET.
