[1] For this glossing Adler adduces a scholion on Thucydides 2.76.4, but the headword is accusative plural there. The Suda's dative plural must be quoted from somewhere else; there are numerous possibilities.
[2] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 4.23.19.
[3] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as, again, from Procopius' History of the Wars of Justinian: this time 7.20.14 (here abridged and modified). See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.XCII, following Haury.
[4] cf. Syntacticon Laurentianum, Anecdota Oxoniensia 4.281.26.
