From Harpokration s.v. dermhsth/s.
[1] Lysias fr. 104 Sauppe, now 122 Carey OCT. But NB, according to Harpokration, Lysias merely used the word, without explanation. It was Didymus, commenting on Sophokles (fr. 449 Radt), who attempted to gloss it.
[2] For Aristarchus see generally alpha 3892.
[3] From the Milesian Histories of Aristides (FGrH 495 F1).
