Very similarly in ps.-Zonaras (though the quotation there is shorter).
[1] The headword is a present active participle of e)cubri/zw, masculine nominative singular (as translated here; alternatively, neuter nominative/accusative plural). It is probably extracted from the quotation which follows, though other instances are extant, including one in Plato, Laws 691C (a passage quoted by Stobaeus).
[2] Adler tentatively attributes this quotation to Arrian's Parthica (p. 31.106 Roos). On Dekebalos, see delta 189, delta 344.
