Greek Original:
*ku/klwsis: parata/cews ei)=dos. dei/cantes e)n h(me/ra mia=| kai\ o(/pws kuklw/sasqai di' u(perbolh\n a)ndrei/as, para\ th\n xrei/an tou= pole/mou th\n e)pi\ th=s e)cousi/as a)/skhsin e)ndeica/menos.
[1] Reading h(me/ra| mia=|, just as (albeit in reverse order) at pi 1122: see next note. (Adler's h(me/ra mia=| is surely just a slip.)
[2] Source unknown, but quoted at greater length at pi 1122 (and see also theta 63). The quotation displays not the headword but a related verb. Curiously, the headword does appear (in the accusative) in part of the quotation omitted here.
