[1] The headword is aorist active participle of e)mpri/w, masculine nominative plural; presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Asmus associated this quotation (again under kappa 818) with Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 177 (Byz. Zt. 19.280); Adler prefers to attribute it to Aelian; Zintzen retains it for Damascius, while noting Adler's disagreement (fr. 315).
