The headword, a neuter plural, is extracted from the quotation given -- but see below.
For the gloss on this passage cf. alpha 1612.
The passage itself is an approximation of Herodian 7.12.2 (which in fact contains the singular of the headword); 'he' is the shortlived (238 CE) joint Roman emperor Decius Caelius Calvinus Balbinus. See Favuzzi [cited under alpha 1990] 56.
