[1] The headword (also kappa 482, kappa 483) has the same gloss in Photius and in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon. This sense (LSJ's III) of katabolh/ is attested in Plato, Gorgias 519A (web address 1) and also -- though as the variant kathbolh/ -- in Hippias Minor 372E (web address 2).
[2] Polybius fr. 168 Büttner-Wobst. [In her critical apparatus, Adler notes that Schweighäuser replaced e)k katabolh=s with e)k metabolh=s, "after a wheeling-about manoeuvre," which Büttner-Wobst (536) adopts.] Büttner-Wobst notes (ibid.) that Valesius (Henri de Valois 1603-1676) attributed this fragment to Polybius.
