[1] Procopius, Secret History 6.10.
[2] Perhaps rather, "Especially that his brother Gaius would not endure that he should survive after he had become a slave of his enemies" (interpreting periei=nai not as "to conquer" but as "to continue living," and supposing that the lexicographer may be mistaken, or that nika=n belongs to pi 1146 instead of here). In any event, the quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) is unidentifiable.
