*)anh/rrhsen: a)nefqa/rh. w(s mo/lis a)nh/rrhsan, ou)de/n e)smen oi( saproi/. *eu)/polis *po/lesin.
Same entry in Photius and elsewhere. The headword ought not, on the face of it, to be extracted from the quotation given, which here in the Suda and also in Photius has plural a)nh/rrhsan; however, modern editors have corrected this to the singular.
