[1] The headword, a dative plural, famously occurs in Matthew 23.27 (where the Pharisees et al. are likened to 'whited sepulchres'), and this is probably a gloss on it.
[2] An approximation of Xenophon, Anabasis 4.2.22 (web address 1); it uses not the headword participle but an adjective of similar meaning.
