[1] The headword is feminine accusative singular of an adjective (LSJ entry at web address 1), taken from the quotation about to be given; the glossing word, pandaisia (for which see already pi 166 through pi 169) is a noun.
[2] Babrius 95.90-92, cf. delta 67; the preceding verses are quoted at alpha 4681, the following at nu 126. On Babrius generally, see beta 7.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable, but perhaps (as Bernhardy suggested) connected with the one in epsilon 3227.
