The headword verb is illustrated by the first five of the quotations given.
[1] Agathias, Histories 5.21; more fully at omicron 782.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler rejects a suggested attribution to Damascius).
[3] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 2.6.25.
[4] Quotation unidentifiable.
[5] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as an abbreviation of Josephus, Jewish War 5.10. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXIII.
[6] Quotation unidentifiable.
[7] Perhaps Arrian: see p.50 Roos. (In any event this quotation uses a compound form of the headword verb.)
