evidences not available to Erasmus - or not used properly

Steven Avery said:
Notes on Erasmus and the heavenly witnesses.
1) Very curious is the omission of Cyprian in the Erasmus studies of the heavenly witnesses.
2) The Council of Carthage with 400+ orthodox affirming the verse from John was not yet published.
3) Erasmus did a little dance to try to get around the solecism.
4) Old Latin sources including the Freisinger Fragment and the Speculum were not yet discovered. These match up with the Tertullian and Cyprian references.
What are your sources for all the above.
What point do you need sources for?

This is all easily available information.

#1 - Erasmus actually produced a Cyprian edition with the Unity of the Church reference.
I cover that and Ad Jubaianum on PBF.

#2 - The Council of Carthage is published 1541.

Here is the Richard Simon footnote by W. R. Andrew Hunwick showing the edition.
