Attested only here. Adler initially suggested Symeon Metaphrastes as a possible source, but in her consolidated addenda and corrigenda offered the alternative of FGrH 151.
The noun in the phrase is otherwise unattested in this sense, and since ms V places the entry after omicron 131 (while mss AF omit it altogether) its spelling was apparently unclear.
