[1] The headword is third person singular, present indicative active, of the verb kolou/w (cf. kappa 1949). Same or similar glossing in other lexica (see the references at Photius kappa900 Theodoridis), and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 8.211, from where it is very probably quoted.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler, but Favuzzi [see under delta 654] 225-226 now points to close similarities with Cassius Dio 76 (77).11 (= vol.III pp.365-366 Boissonade) on Septimius Severus. Favuzzi further argues that this material comes direct from Dio, not via epitomators.
