Same entry in ps.-Zonaras; see further below.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica (references at Photius alpha700 Theodoridis); and cf. alpha 4458, where the headword is used of the emperor Aurelian.
[2] In ps.-Zonaras the penultimate word is not pursw=n but *persw=n ("of the Persians"). Either way, the quotation is undentifiable. (Adler, on no discernible basis, suggests Symeon Metaphrastes.)
