[1] The headword is presumably (though not demonstrably) extracted from the quotation given, where a present singular has a neuter plural subject. For this verb see also pi 2992, pi 2993, pi 2994, pi 2995; and for comparable glossing of other forms of it cf. Hesychius pi4129 and Etymologicum Magnum 693.44-45.
[2] A maxim used twice by Procopius: Secret History 4.44 and (missed by Adler) History of the Wars of Justinian 8.12.34. Again, more fully (and more accurately: the present version omits the preposition ek), at tau 1234.
