[1] = Photius, Lexicon theta98 Theodoridis, except that Ph. has "across the city". Similarly in (e.g.) Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon (990a22), perhaps referring to Plato, Laws 695A, where the headword occurs (web address 1); however, since Timaeus draws on many other authors besides Plato, there are great attractions in Theodoridis' suggestion that the passage which has generated these entries is Isocrates 6.76 (quraulei=n kai\ plana=sqai kata\ th\n xw/ran).
