[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica. The headword must be quoted from somewhere (perhaps Plato, Republic 330E, though there are other possibilities; cf. e.g. under delta 1071).
[2] An approximation of Procopius, Secret History 1.13, describing the shamelessness of the wife of Belisarius. Cf. kappa 536.
[3] Attributed to Eunapius by Bernhardy, comparing frs. 66-67 FHG (4.44). (Odysseus sheds his rags -- and proceeds to kill his wife's suitors -- at the beginning of Homer, Odyssey 22.)
[4] Perhaps quoted from Herodotus (3.35.4 or 9.73.2).
[5] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 2.6.24.
