The headword mesobasileu/s is a loan-translation of the Latin interrex (LSJ entry at web address 1); again, in the plural, at nu 515, q.v. For this extraordinary office of the early and middle Roman Republic see OCD(4) p.739.
The present entry's material, at any rate from 'for a whole year' onwards, is John of Antioch fr.32 FHG (4.553), now 59 Roberto.
