[1] The headword is a rare aorist participle of proa/llomai, masculine nominative singular. Outside the present entry it is attested only in -- and perhaps, therefore, extracted from -- Agathias, Histories 1.14.3 (27.22). (But see also next note.)
[2] Bernhardy attributed this quotation to Menander Protector, and it is now MP fr.30.3 Blockley. (On Narses, see generally nu 42.)
