The primary headword -- present middle/passive participle, masculine nominative singular, of diarta/w -- is presumably extracted from the first quotation given.
[1] Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Roman Antiquities 1.39.3, adapted. In Dionysius the sentence begins: "But when (Heracles) does not find (the cattle), he approaches the cave...." This is from the story of Heracles and Cacus.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable.
[3] cf. delta 737.
[4] Genitive plural, also in three other lexica; evidently quoted from somewhere.
cf. delta 736, delta 1022, alpha 2927, and alpha 4033.
