[1] Accusative singular(s), from the quotation which follows. For the headword see generally LSJ s.v.; it normally refers to plant rather than human life.
[2] Quotation (probably excerpted from a lost part of the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. For Philippos II, king of Macedon 359-336 BCE, see generally entry phi 354. His marriage -- one of seven in all -- to the Molossian Olympias (mother of Alexander the Great) took place in c.357. Arsinoe (sic: alpha 4018) was a Macedonian noblewoman, who subsequently married Lagos, the father of Ptolemy: see under lambda 16 and lambda 25.
