[1] The headword is present participle, masculine nominative singular, of this verb. It must be quoted from somewhere (other than the quotation given here, which has the imperfect e)pe/grafen); there are numerous possibilities.
[2] For this pretender, a.k.a. Andriscus, of the mid-second century BCE, see Polybius 36.9.1-2, 36.10.2, 36.17.13; Diodorus Siculus 32.15 (and 32.9ab). Valckenaer (as Adler notes) attributed the present quotation to Polybius, but Diodorus would be equally likely. (See also Appian, Libyca 643; Strabo 71.1.48, 13.4.2.) In any event Andriscus, who claimed to be a son of Perseus (pi 1370, pi 1371), issued coins with the legend 'of king Philip', i.e. a putative Philip VI. (For Philip V see phi 355.) He was the last of the Macedonian kings in any sense: after his brief reign, 149-148, the Romans turned Macedonia into a province.
[3] A problematic extra gloss, in the accusative case. Kuster deleted it; Bernhardy thought it belonged to a different entry.
