    What's the indexing category of the constant diagram functor used in (that is, what is the domain category of Δ_{c'})? I suspect it's the terminal category, in which case I'm confused why the notation Δ_{c'} / p rather than just c' / p is being used. Either way, I think that part of the page needs a clarification (either replacing Δ_{c'} with c' and saying that it's a (co)slice category, or mentioning what the indexing category is for the constant diagram functor.)

    It’s not really a (co)slice category. As you surmised, the domain of Δ c\Delta_{c'} is indeed 𝟙\mathbb{1}, and the description as a comma category is completely accurate.
