[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpts made for Constantine Porphyrogenitus) unidentifiable. Clearly the verb by itself would not mean "one day later"; the interval needs to be specified.
[2] The verb u(stere/w is an alternative to u(steri/zw. Adler reports a similar entry in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
[3] Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Roman Antiquities 20.3.5; cf. upsilon 688.
