Greek Original:
Chorêgia: dosis. kai Polubios: mê hoion kata thalattan tas paraskeuas kai ta chorêgia parakomizein tois stratopedois mêde epi hupozugiôn, all' en tais pêrais dech' hêmerôn echontas ephodia.
[1] The headword is ambiguous in form. With the accent it has, it is the nominative singular of the feminine noun xorhgi/a; this accords with the gloss. The form in the quotation which follows, xorh/gia, is the accusative plural of the neuter noun xorh/gion.
[2] Polybius fr. 88 Büttner-Wobst. Büttner-Wobst notes that Schweighäuser, evidently aware of the headword's ambiguity, prefaced the quotation with the neuter noun as follows: kai\ xorh/gion *polu/bios. See also chi 395, the last lines of which Küster in his edition transposed to the end of this entry.
