[1] Likewise in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon (and again in Photius). Perhaps generated by the occurrence of the headword adjective in Plato, Republic 338D (where Thrasymachus applies it to Socrates), though not necessarily so; Timaeus' Lexicon does not confine itself to Plato.
[2] Aelian fr. 160 Domingo-Forasté (163 Hercher).
[3] Likewise, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
