Despite occurring in the quotation given (on which see n. 2 below), the headword phrase is more probably extracted from Xenophon, Anabasis 2.1.7; cf. the scholia there. See also 1.8.1 (with another preposition); and cf. alpha 306, sigma 1509.
[1] (Fourth to sixth hour would be from about 10 a.m. to noon.) Likewise in other lexica; references at Photius pi738 Theodoridis. See pi 1745 (which says third hour) and LSJ s.v. a)gora/ IV.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable, but Bernhardy -- who also proposed emending qo/ruboi to qoru/bw| -- joined it with the fragment at alpha 4670 (cf. mu 1437).
