[1] Adler suggested Aelian as a possible source of this quotation, but in fact (as a TLG search reveals) it is an approximation of Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Roman Antiquities 3.21.10 (where instead of the Suda's nonsensical and redundant "conducting crowns", the original has "conducting triumphs" (qria/mbous)). The mss. of D.H. share the reading of stefhforei=n ('to wear crowns') with the majority of Suda mss., although that verb is otherwise confined to late/Byzantine Greek. Most modern editions of D.H. accept B├╝cheler's correction to the synonymous and more common stefanhforei=n, a reading that is attested in Suda ms. F (= Laurentianus 55.1). See LSJ s.v. stefhfore/w at web address 1 below. On the source-identification see Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXIX.
[2] Xenophon, Anabasis 1.1.7, which reads kai\ e)peira=to ("...and he was trying...") for the Suda's o( de\ e)peira=to ("He was trying..."). See web address 2 below for the text.
