[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword participle must be quoted from somewhere but is not otherwise attested.
[2] Aristophanes, Peace 648. Adler, for once, errs, in citing line 326 of the play: the phrase does occur there too, but in a quite different context from the one in question here, which the entry, drawn from the scholia ad loc., proceeds to elucidate. See also, more explicitly, pi 805.
