[1] For the verb cf. epsilon 2364. This is its aorist, third person singular, presumably extracted from the quotation given (but note also Herodotus 8.92.2).
[2] An approximation of Agathias, Histories 192.21 (5.22 Niebuhr), which has 'the enemy'. According to de Boor, the Suda quotation departs so much from Agathias that a different (unknown) source is likely.
