Of Athens or Naukratis,[1] but some [call him] Sikyonian; others wrote [that he was] Egyptian. Historian. [He wrote] The Expedition of Pyrrhos of Epeiros against the Peloponnese in 28 books; but he takes [events] as far as Ptolemy called Euergetes[2] and the death of Berenike and up to the death of Kleonymos the Lakedaimonian after Antigonos [sc. Doson] marched against him.[3] [He also wrote] The Story of Antiochos and of Eumenes of Pergamon, Summary of Myth, On the Apparition of Zeus, On Discoveries, [and] 9 books of Digressions.[4]

C3 BCE. OCD4 Phylarchus; FGrH 81 (where this Suda entry is T1).
[1] cf. Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 2.58C (2.51 Kaibel). (For Naukratis, see nu 58.)
[2] Ptolemy III Euergetes. See further, next note.
[3] The point being made is that this 28-volume work with a title -- if such it was -- referring to an event of 272 BCE in fact began then and covered the following 52 years. Ptolemy III and his wife Berenike died in 221/0, and the Spartan king Kleomenes III (sic: not the Suda's 'Kleonymos') the following year. On Antigonos Doson (and Kleomenes) see alpha 2659.
[4] The Greek word, here in the genitive plual, is parembasis, for which there is no parallel; embasis has a semantic field centred upon entrance, embarcation, etc. LSJ Supp. suggests the alternative parekba/sewn (credited to Sevin by Jacoby); parekbasis means a going aside or deviation. On the basis of Polybius 1.15.13, etc., the sense of 'digression' seems suitable here.
