I presume that it would be one of the two editions cited on p. xxiv of the
9th ed. (not the supplement). There is a 4 vol. ed ot the scholia by W.
Dindorf ()xford, 1963) and a two volume edition by Eduard Schwarz (Berlin,
1887, 1892).

Scholia are notoriously difficult to date, since they are often added
between the lines or in the margins of manuscripts. The editors gather them
from all over the place. The only guide to dating is paleography--if one is
certain that they are not also copied form an earlier MS.
