[Meaning] to march,[1] to set out. "[...] but to advance and to join in dying at the attempts of the matters."[2]

The headword infinitive is presumably extracted from the first quotation given.
[1] cf. Hesychius chi869.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. Adler notes the proposed emendation of its opening a)lla/ to a(/ma by Gilbert Wakefield (1756-1801), notorious for his 'passion for tampering with the texts of the Classics' (J.E. Sandys, History of Classical Scholarship 2.430).
[3] Adler simply notes here Bernhardy's realisation that this passage concerns Pyrrhus of Epirus. In fact it begins the longer quotation from Dionysius of Halicarnassus given at pi 3232; cf. Favuzzi [cited under alpha 1518] 58.
[4] i.e. the same as the headword but transitive. The sense is contain/hold; see LSJ s.v. xwre/w, III.
