[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica (references at Photius rho174 Theodoridis), and cf. the scholia to Lucian (30.12 Rabe), on r(uqmize/tw in How to Write History 48. The present entry's r(uqmi/zei is also, evidently, quoted from somewhere -- perhaps again Lucian (De saltatione 6). [The quotation which follows contains the related noun r(uqmo/s, for which see also rho 288.]
[2] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 113 Zintzen (61 Asmus), quoted also at epsilon 1155 and tau 262. Cf. Photius, Bibliotheca 339b 4-6.
