More complex entries from which this one might be derived are found in Hesychius (epsilon4933), the Etymologicum Genuinum, and the Etymologicum Magnum (361.39); see also Photius, Lexicon epsilon1617 and 1617a in Theodoridis' edition.
The headword phrase itself occurs in several classical-period authors including Aristophanes, Plato and Demosthenes.
The evidence for the location of the Lenaion is obscure and controversial, but on balance it is most likely to have been in the Agora: see Pickard-Cambridge/Gould/Lewis 37-40.
cf. generally lambda 454, lambda 455, lambda 456, lambda 457, lambda 458.
