Ἀποκαρτερήσαντα: ἑαυτὸν λιμῷ ἢ ἀγχόνῃ τοῦ βίου ἐξαγαγόντα. Λυκοῦργον τὸν Λακεδαιμόνιον νομοθέτην μετὰ τὸ θεῖναι τοὺς νόμους ἐλθόντα εἰς Κρήτην ἀποκαρτερῆσαι, ὅπως μὴ αὐτοῖς ἀναγκασθείη λῦσαι. καὶ αὖθις: ὁ δὲ Ἀναξαγόρας ἐλθὼν ἐν Λαμψάκῳ καὶ ἀποκαρτερήσας τὸν βίον καταστρέφει.
[1] Same glossing in other lexica. The headword participle, masculine accusative singular, must be quoted from somewhere (other than the quotations given below) -- probably Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 6.234A (6.24 Kaibel) [= part of Posidonius fr. 402 Theiler], on Gylippos (gamma 477) doing this after his conviction for embezzlement by the ephors.

[3] cf. alpha 1981.
