Greek Original:
Erumna: ta êsphalismena chôria. kai Erumnasthai, katêsphalisthai. hoi de ôionto polemiôn plêthei ou ti eualôtoi, tôi erumnasthai kata nôtou têi akessêi: ta de loipa autoi dienoounto epamunein.
[1] The headword is neuter plural nominative/accusative of the adjective e)rumno/s; cf. epsilon 3107 (for both headword and gloss). It must be quoted from somewhere; Xenophon, Anabasis 1.2.8 or 5.5.2, to judge by the scholia there.
[2] Apparently a Latin word: see alpha 840 (also alpha 203 and epsilon 52).
[3] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
