[1] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Frogs 897, where the headword phrase (accusative case) occurs. The 'competitive'/'quarrelsome' sense of this adjective -- #1 in LSJ s.v. -- is the correct one in this instance (and cf. delta 11, delta 17, delta 19, etc.), though the connection with dah=nai is registered as sense #2 there.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler suggests Aelian.)
