Greek Original:
Σεῖστρον: ὁ δὲ ξυρεῖ τὴν κεφαλὴν καὶ τὸ γένειον, λαθεῖν θέλων καὶ σκευὴν Αἰγυπτίαν ἀναλαβών, ἥνπερ οἱ τῆς Ἴσιδος θεραπευτῆρες ἤσθηνται, καὶ σεῖστρον ἐπισείων ἠλᾶτο.
Aelian fr. 124b and 124c DF (121 Hercher); cf. alpha 211, pi 2900. [Adler cross-references also to theta 228, but this seems to have strayed in from sigma 223.]
