[2] Thus far the entry = Photius, Lexicon delta495 Theodoridis, where the editor proposes inserting the name 'Thucydides' from delta 827 (q.v.); see e.g. Thuc. 1.57.2, 3.61.2.
[3] Adler's typesetting regards dia/foron pra=gma as a two-word phrase, evidently quoted from somewhere. If so, it is unidentifiable. Alternatively, if pra=gma is not part of the quotation, the point might simply be introductory to the occurrence of dia/foron in the quotation which follows.
[4] Polybius 4.18.8 (web address 1), on Dorimachos et al. at Kynaitha (Arcadia). In a context like this, diaphoron actually means cash, ready money: see LSJ s.v. diaphoros, II.4.
