Greek Original:
*phni/ka: po/te. ou)k ei)do/ta, phni/ka de\ e)cw/rmhse th=s nukto/s.
[1] The headword is an interrogative adverb, correlative with thni/ka and h(ni/ka. Same or similar glosses in other lexica (references at Photius pi863 Theodoridis); and cf. pi 1528.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. [Adler notes Hermann's conjecture of diecw/rmhce in place of de\ e)cw/rmhse, as the de\ seems out of place.]
