[1] So too in Hesychius. Modern scholarship, though, doubts such early origins: see e.g. J.K. Davies, Athenian Propertied Families 600-300 BC (Oxford 1971) 369.
[2] Genitive plural, presumably extracted from the quotation which follows; in any event, unrelated to the headword.
[3] Greek Anthology 7.206.2 (Damocharis); cf. already alpha 1034, and again alpha 2175. See another quote from this epigram at sigma 911. (In mythology Aktaion was torn apart by his own hunting-dogs after he had seen the goddess Artemis bathing.)
