Adler number: alpha,895

Greek Original:
*)aklhrh/masi: sumforai=s, dustuxi/ais. dia\ tou=to dokei= moi ma/lista peripesei=n toi=s a)klhrh/masi, dia\ to\ pa/ntwn bou/lesqai stoxa/zesqai kai\ meri/zesqai ei)s dia/fora.
Same entry in ps.-Zonaras. The headword, dative plural of the neuter noun a)klh/rhma, is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] The glosses are the dative plurals of the feminine nouns sumfora/ and dustuxi/a, respectively.
[2] Attributed to Polybius by Ursinus [Fulvio Orsini, 1529-1600] and Casaubon, but the idiom is actually far more characteristic of Diodorus Siculus; for instance see under epsilon 2759.
