The unglossed headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given. For the verb cf. epsilon 3319.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable, but presumably from a rhetorical exercise on events and personalities of the 40s BC. That Antony (cf. under iota 399) 'killed Cicero' (kappa 1594), in December 43, is an over-simplification. After Antony had marked him down for proscription, Cicero was tracked down and killed by Antony's soldiers (see e.g. Plutarch, Cicero 47-49). Cicero's head and hands were cut off, and Antony had them displayed on the rostra -- perhaps at the instigation of his then wife Fulvia: see under phi 567.
