Greek Original:
Ἑταιρεία: ἡ συνήθης ὁμόνοια, καὶ φιλία. Βάβριος: θέντο μετ' ἀλλήλοισιν ἑταιρείην μύε δοιώ, οὐ καθ' ὁμὰ ζώοντες: ὁ μὲν κατὰ νειὸν ἐρήμην ἐτρέφετ', ὃς δὲ δόμοισιν ἐν ἀφνειῶν τρέφετ' ἀνδρῶν. Ἑταιρεία καὶ τὸ τάγμα. καὶ Ἑταιρειάρχης, ὁ τῆς ἑταιρείας ἄρχων.
See LSJ at web address 1; and cf. epsilon 3270.
[1] Same glossing, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
[2] Babrius p.217 Crusius (fable of the town mouse and the country mouse).
[3] This application of hetaireia is not explicitly registered in LSJ s.v., though sense I.2 there hints at it (by citing Aristotle on the Carthaginian συσσίτια τῶν ἑταιριῶν , likened to the military messes of Sparta). The noun hetaireiarkhes is not attested until late antiquity.
