[1] Josephus, Jewish War 1.192 (see web address 1 below). For Antipater, father of Herod the Great, see OCD(4) s.v. Antipater(6), pp.107-8. 'Caesar' is Julius Caesar. Mithradates is not one of the six kings of Pontus who bore that name (cf. mu 1044) but the half-caste son of the last of them: a.k.a. M. of Pergamum.

Headword: *)ana/paulan
Adler number: alpha,1998
Translated headword: rest
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] repose.[1]
Repose [is] the life to come.[2]
"Giving [him] rest from war with other very worthy men."[3]
Menander [writes]: "for thus the greatest leader of the Huns came upon his rest."[4] That is, he died.
Also [sc. attested is the accusative plural] a)napau/las ["rests"], [meaning] sendings to the dead. "Who is [bound] for rests from evils and troubles?"[5] Charon [Author, Myth] announces [this], and lists as destinations. "Who is for the Plain of Oblivion?" The plain of Oblivion is a place of this name that he has imagined in Hades; as also the Withering Stone.[6] "Who is for Ass Shearings?" Thus they call what is useless; for not even the shearings of the ass have a use. In reference to endless things.

Headword: le/getai kai\ i(/ppos
Adler number: delta,1164
Translated headword: Diomedeian compulsion
Vetting Status: high
Also found is '[Diomedeian] horse'.[1] A proverb, [stemming] from [Diomedes [Author, Myth]] the son of Tydeus or from the Thracian [Diomedes]. The latter compelled his guests to have intercourse with his daughters and then killed them. His daughters were disgraceful (and the horses are allegories for them). Others say that Diomedes and Odysseus were returning after stealing the Palladium. Odysseus, following behind, intended to kill Diomedes; but Diomedes saw the shadow of his sword in the moonlight and, out of fear, made Odysseus lead the way, poking him in the back with his sword.[2] The proverb is used to describe those who do something under compulsion. The reason for the proverb is this: because Diomedes had man-eating horses.
[Note] that[3] Diomedes on his homeward journey put in to his own land, but was not welcomed. He was chased out, and he went to Calabria[4] where he founded a city which he called Argyrippe; this has since changed its name to Beneventum.

For 'Diomedeian compulsion' see e.g. Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 1029; Plato, Republic 493D; Zenobius 3.8.
[By a slip, the SOL headword gives not this phrase but the opening of the gloss.]
[1] (This initial gloss, Adler reports, occurs in only two of the mss.) On the carnivorous horses of Diomedes [Author, Myth] -- the Thracian one about to be mentioned -- see generally OCD(4) 458, under 'Diomedes(1)'.
