Transliteration of the Latin dictator; again delta 1112, and see already the cognate abstract noun at delta 1110.
[1] Likewise in Hesychius. See further, next note.
[2] Likewise -- both elements -- in Photius (see further, next note) and other lexica. But these are late applications of the headword noun; for its earlier, literal sense see e.g. Plutarch, Moralia 777B (of L. Aemilius Paullus, cos. 182 and 168 BCE), and under eta 545 (Philostratus on Herodes Atticus).
[3] Likewise in Photius. For the accountability criterion cf. already delta 1110.
[4] Similarly in ps.-Zonaras.
