[1] See also kappa 595, kappa 596; and cf. kappa 597. The headword is better spelled katokwxh/, but the late spelling katakwxh/ is required by the alphabetization here.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. Tiberius Hemsterhuis (1685-1766) emended the final word from w(/ras to xw/ras ("... for possession of the territory"); his version appears in LSJ s.v. katokwxh/ I.
