Tiberius Hemsterhuys attributed this quotation (which includes the headword) to Eunapius; cf. in any event pi 715 with n.6 there. The only other attestation of the headword is in Plutarch, Quaestiones Conviviales 706C (in the dative plural).
[1] The final verb here, a)pe/yaue (otherwise unattested), is likely to be a false reading for e)pe/yaue as at pi 715.
