[1] Quotation -- transmitted, according to Adler, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti -- unidentifiable. This passage was at one time attributed to Polybius by Casaubon, and endorsed by Ursinus (Fulvio Orsini, 1529-1600), but not accepted as reflecting Polybian style by Dindorf (Büttner-Wobst, p. 528). Büttner-Wobst does in fact doubt the attribution to Polybius (ibid.).
[2] From the scholia to Thucydides 1.19, where the headword occurs (of an alliance).
