Greek Original:
Ἀνασείειν: ἐκτινάσσειν, ὡς καὶ ἡμεῖς. οὐ γὰρ ἀνασείων ἠκολούθει Καλαμίδα. καὶ Ἀνασείω, ἀναπείθω ἢ πρὸς μάχην ἐρεθίζω. ὁ δὲ τοὺς Συρακουσίους ἀνασείων καὶ τὴν ἐλευθερίαν ἀποκαταστήσειν ἐπαγγειλάμενος. καὶ Ἀνασείσας, ἀπειλησάμενος. Δημοσθένης κατὰ Ἀριστογείτονος.
Notes:
[1] Glossing abbreviated from Photius, Lexicon alpha1655 Theodoridis.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable with certainty, though Adler (addenda) notes Maas's view [BZ 28 (1928) 421] that it perhaps comes from comedy; now registered as Kassel-Austin adespota fr. 916. The concluding noun is generally printed in lower case ('reed, twig'), but alternatively this is the sculptor of that name; OCD(4) s.v. Calamis (p.263).
[3] Diodorus Siculus 14.10.3, on the Spartan envoy Aristos/Aretes.
[4] Demosthenes 25.47 (web address 1 below).
