Same entry (but with the quotation foreshortened) in ps.-Zonaras.
[1] The headword is present indicative active, third person plural, of the verb e)kklei/w (cf. epsilon 461); presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Polybius fr. 36 Büttner-Wobst; cf. ps.-Zonaras 667.15 (partial quotation, which stops at oi( kairoi/). Büttner-Wobst records (p. 518) three scholarly attempts at emending the final participial phrase in the entry (profe/rwn tou/tw| tou\s lo/gous, addressing to him the words). Bernhardy proposed profe/ronti tou/tous tou\s lo/gous, the associated dative participle (in addressing them the words). Hultsch thought that the Suda's verb was inappropriate, suggesting instead prosfe/rwn tou/tw| tou\s lo/gous, the present active participle, masculine nominative/vocative singular of the verb prosfe/rw, I bring upon, apply to; thus, applying to him the words. Finally, Büttner-Wobst himself weighed in with prosfe/ronta tou/tw| tou\s lo/gous, the present active participle, masculine accusative singular; thus, by applying to him the words.
