Greek Original:
Ἄποθεν: χωρίς, ἢ πόρρωθεν. ῥινοῦ χερμαστῆρος ἐύ̈στροφα κῶλα τιταίνων Ἀλκιμένης πτανῶν εἶργον ἄποθε νέφος. καὶ αὖθις: Ῥουφῖνος δέ οἱ μεταξὺ ἐπανήκων ἐνέτυχε πόλεως Νισίβιδος οὐ μακρὰν ἄποθεν. καὶ Ἄποθέν γέ ποθεν, ἀπό τινος μέρους ἰσημέρου.

[4] From Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon, where however (as Adler's apparatus notes) the first word is corrected to ἀμόθεν . This is evidently because the Platonic phrase deemed to have generated the entry (Gorgias 492D, Laws 798D) is ἁμόθεν γέ ποθεν , "from somewhere or other".
