The unglossed headword, masculine nominative singular, might be generated by the first quotation given (which uses the corresponding plural); alternatively, if it is extracted from somewhere in its own right, the likeliest place is Xenophon, Anabasis 5.8.3.
[1] Xenophon, Cyropaedia 5.5.41 (web address 1).
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. (It uses the comparative of an adjective related to the headword, u(bristiko/s.) Bernhardy noted that the passage was imitating Herodotus 3.81.1 (web address 2); Adler tentatively ascribes it to Aelian.
