Polybius [writes]: "Philip was displeased at the contempt of the Corcyreans."[1] That is, with [their] scorn.
Greek Original:
*)apaci/wsis. *polu/bios: o( de\ *fi/lippos e)dusxe/rainen e)pi\ th=| tw=n *kerkurai/wn a)paciw/sei. toute/sti katafronh/sei.
The unglossed headword, a feminine noun in the nominative case, is presumably generated by its dative in the quotation given.
[1] Polybius fr. 10 Büttner-Wobst. Büttner-Wobst (p. 515), citing Niese (p. 468 and p. 779), notes that this fragment seems to pertain to the campaign of Philip V, king of Macedon (cf. OCD(4) s.v., p. 1129), against Corcyra (Barrington Atlas map 54 grid A1, modern-day Corfu, Greece) in 215 BCE. Walbank summarizes the scholarly dispute over this attribution (pp. 745-746).
