[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; see the references at Photius kappa74 Theodoridis. The headword is aorist infinitive of the verb kairofulakei=n; cf. generally kappa 1192 and phi 826. It is presumably quoted from somewhere (but, if so, not the quotation given, which uses the present infinitive).
[2] Quotation (and personnel) unidentifiable.
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; history; military affairs
