The List of Pauline References in Methodius Apparently Does Not Include the Anti-Origenist Work Cited in Epiphanius's Panarion

I have noticed similar gaps in the CERF list of Patristic sources.  Irenaeus is almost completely ignored.  The list of references in Clement of Alexandria are sloppy (but I haven't double checked the list against Stahlin).  It was originally so hopeful to have found a definitive list of Patristic witnesses to the New Testament.  Now I am quite disappointed.  Someone has to go through this list and make it more exact.

UPDATE - Correction the Methodius fragment in Epiphanius is in fact listed in CERF but the rest of what I say here still stands.
