[1] Same entry in the Synagoge, Lexica Segueriana 321.27, and Photius, Lexicon omicron600 Theodoridis. The headword phrase must be quoted from somewhere; outside these lexica, the only extant instances are in Origen (Contra Celsum/Against Celsus 5.47) and Eusebius (Ecclesiastical History 5.4.3).
[2] Sophocles, Ajax 1039 (web address 1).
[3] Quotation unidentifiable (Adler tentatively attributes it to Aelian); o(/tw| is an alternative form for w(=| tini, dative singular of the indefinite relative or indirect interrogative pronoun o(/stis.
