[Meaning] what the Romans call a fibula.[1]

Greek Original:
*po/rph: h( para\ *(rwmai/ois fi/bla. o( de\ th\n po/rphn au)tou= spa/sas, a)ei/, fhsi/n, u(mei=s oi( para\ tw=n *)axaiw=n e)ste\ toiou=toi kh/rukes. kai\ *porpou=sqai, fiblou=sqai.
cf. generally pi 2092.
[1] Likewise in the Synagoge, Photius' Lexicon (pi1106 Theodoridis), and elsewhere; similarly already in Hesychius pi3052. See also pi 1016. *fi/bla is a transliteration of Latin fibula.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
[3] = Synagoge, Photius (pi1107 Theodoridis), etc. The form glossed here, present middle infinitive of porpo/w, is unattested elsewhere.
