Greek Original:
*brabei=s: oi( e)n toi=s a)gw=si kh/rukes. *sofoklh=s: o(/son ga\r ei)sekh/rucan brabei=s dro/mwn diau/lwn pe/ntaql', a(\ nomi/zetai.
The headword, nominative plural, is presumably extracted from the quotation given (though see n. 2 below).

[1] Likewise in ps.-Zonaras.
[2] Sophokles, Elektra 690-91 (web address 1 below). Pearson and Jebb both read o(/swn for o(/son and brabh=s for brabei=s, and they obelize line 691 (from dro/mwn on). For 'heralded in' cf. epsiloniota 282.
