[1] The headword phrase, similarly glossed in other lexica, is in the accusative case; it is taken to be quoted from Attic tragedy (Adespota fr. 328k Kannicht-Snell). See generally epsilon 961 and ps.-Zonaras 700.15 Tittmann.
[2] George of Pisidia, Heraclias 3, fr.46.2; but the original reads e)n me/sw| instead of the (quite odd) e)/sw.
[3] Menander Protector fr. 20.3 Blockley; again under tau 89. On 'Tanchosdro' see n.3 at delta 1327.
[4] Accepted by Blockley as another fragment (his fr. 34) of Menander Protector.
