[1] A member (in the second half of the C4 BCE: see the next note) of the Areopagos Council in Athens; cf. generally alpha 3824.
[2] The Greek defeat at the battle of Chaironeia, autumn 338 BCE. The Suda's source here, Harpokration s.v., records that Lycurgus was his prosecutor (Lyc. fr. III.1a Conomis, and cf. Lyc. Against Leocrates 53 [web address 1]).
[3] Also in the Synagoge and Photius. Perhaps a variant of, or mistake for, alpha 4505 (q.v.); if not, mysterious.
