The headword is a denominative verb from pa/tagos (pi 770, pi 771, pi 773), here in the present indicative active, third person plural. (For the glossing cf. Hesychius s.v. patagei=.) It must be quoted from somewhere: probably Aristophanes, Clouds 378 (cf. the scholia there), though there are other possibilities, including Sophocles, Ajax 168.
[2] Part of Menander Protector fr. 10.3 Blockley. Here the verb is the compound e)pipatage/w.
[3] Adler attributed this tentatively to Iamblichus; now Iamblichus, Babyloniaca fr. 116 Habrich.
