The headword phrase, nominative singular, is attested in the nominative plural in the Aristotelian treatise de mundo (396a11). The adjective there is in a slightly different form, mukhtai\ seismoi/, but appears as mukhti/ai when the passage is quoted in Stobaeus' Anthology (1.40.1).
For earthquakes see generally sigma 291.
