[1] = Hesychius pi1610, Synagoge, Photius pi655 Theodoridis. Adler asserts that these entries are prompted by Herodotus 7.15.1, where Xerxes is described by this adjective. Theodoridis notes that Schmidt (on Hesychius) agrees, and he is tempted to agree himself, though he also mentions instances in Thucydides and Plato.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler suggests one of her usual suspects, Aelian.)
