From Harpokration s.v. Eurybaton, commenting on the name's appearance in Aeschines 3.137 and citing Ephorus (FGrH 70 F58a) for the information given. See also epsilon 3715, epsilon 3718 (and for Kroisos kappa 2497, kappa 2498, kappa 2499, kappa 2500).
[1] In Harpokration the phrase is "Ephesian man"; here in the Suda "man" has become part of the headword.
