Notes:
See also pi 2214, epsilon 2855.
[1] The glossing participle is indeed transmitted as aorist passive, but Bernhardy was surely right to think it ought to be middle (δωροδοκησάμενος ), i.e. having used bribery.
[2] Polybius 21.32b, on events at Same (in Kephallenia) in 189/8 BCE. The name Ourbios (or Ourvios), here and in omicron 943, represents Fulvius: M. Fulvius Nobilior, one of the consuls of that year and a friend of the poet Ennius (epsilon 1348). The change of -lv- to -rv- is normal in Greek; it is not clear whether the loss of f- here is graphical or phonological.
[3] An approximation of Polybius 8.9.3 (citing Theopompus on Philip II of Macedon); cf. epsilon 1736.
