[1] Same glossing, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. The headword itself (present middle participle, masculine nominative singular, of diama/w; cf. delta 656) must be quoted from somewhere; extant possibilities include Appian, Libyca 166, and Philostratus, Imagines 2.8.2, though in neither case does the context make a good fit with this gloss.
[2] cf. the scholia to Thucydides 4.26.1 (sic, but see next note).
[3] Thucydides 4.26.2 (web address 1)
[4] Cited at Arrian, Parthica p.27 Roos, but not regarded by him as an actual fragment of Arrian.
