Abridged from Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., where, besides Antiphon (below), Aristophanes is cited (fr. 795 Kock = 835 K-A)
[1] The transmitted text has the non-word i)no/podes; as Harpok. shows, it should be i)sto/podes.
[2] Antiphon fr. 11 Sauppe. Harpok. actually quotes the fragment (i(/na tou\s kele/ontas kate/plhcen) and adds that in it the headword might be used figuratively.
