[1] Dexippus FGrH 100 F34 (from his History of events after the death of Alexander the Great). For Hyperides (d.322) see upsilon 294, upsilon 295.
[2] A fragment of a longer quotation (the source of which is unidentifiable) found in delta 431, where the present headword is spelled as two words (ἐπὶ μᾶλλον ) rather than one, as here.
[3] Aelian fr. 259 Hercher (257 Domingo-Forasté).
