[1] Up to this point the entry = scholia to Homer, Iliad 12.320 and to Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 4.1004. See also the first part of Hesychius epsilon3522, and cf. (with different genders/cases) Apollonius Sophista, Homeric Lexicon 69.34; scholia to Homer, Odyssey 2.307; ps.-Herodian 35; and with (misguided) etymologizing Etymologicum Magnum 347.24; Choeroboscus, Prolegomena 148.9 etc.
[2] An approximation of Greek Anthology 6.332.5-6 (the Emperor Hadrian, writing of Trajan), the mss of which read (more credibly) a)teirh/s in place of a)teirei=s, yielding the meaning "when he, tireless, sacked the haughty Getae....". For the Getae of the lower Danube, targeted in Trajan's two Dacian Wars, cf. epsilon 1961.
