[1] Definition as in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon; also in Photius kappa734 Theodoridis. Timaeus may have been glossing an instance like Plato, Apology 28B (kinduneu/eis nuni\ a)poqanei=n "you are now in danger of dying" as "you are getting close to dying"); see also e.g. Theaetetus 196D, Phaedrus 262C.
[2] LSJ s.v. I.b: "make a venture, take a risk... esp. engage in war". (This does not appear to be paralleled in other lexica.)
[3] Eunapius fr.1.242 Dindorf, cited in Constantine Porphyrogenitus, De sententiis p. 86 Boissevain; referring to the campaigns of Valens in Thrace. "But that it is opportune to destroy such camps, drawing out the war and blocking opportunities for those seeking advantage; so that when the many happen to fight against them out of necessity, they should not be put at risk by bad luck; rather they should consider it impossible to be in danger, with the attack being against the opponent".
