Notes:
[1] = Synagoge, Photius pi697 Theodoridis. The headword is the present middle participle, nominative singular masculine, of perii/sthmi (on which see also pi 1163). It must be extracted from somewhere (but not from the quotation given here, which has the imperfect middle indicative, third person singular); there are numerous possibilities.
[2] A close approximation of Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 4.151.
