[1] = Synagoge chi52 and, according to Adler, Lexicum Ambrosianum 145. The headword is perhaps quoted from Sophocles fr. 44 Radt or Lucian, Somnium 9.
[2] For this nominative plural cf. under gamma 189 (= tau 1192) and pi 1084 ; and elsewhere e.g. Herodotus 1.93.
[3] Quotation (and individual) unidentifiable. The word "handicrafts" here is the dative plural of the feminine noun χειρωναξία .
