Greek Original:
Δειμαίνει: φοβεῖται. Προκόπιος: οὐδέ τι πρὸς τοῦ ξυνοικοῦντος δειμαίνουσα δέος οὔτε αἰδῶ τινα ἔργου ἐλάμβανε πώποτε. πάντες δειμαίνοντες τοῦ εὐνούχου Εὐτροπίου τὴν ἀκοὴν ἐξεστήκεσαν, καθάπερ οἱ μνηστῆρες τὸν Ὀδυσσέα γυμνωθέντα τῶν ῥακίων ἰδόντες. καὶ Δειμαίνοντα, φοβούμενον. οἱ δὲ μάλιστα μὲν καὶ ὡς ἀμφὶ τῷ περιβόλῳ δειμαίνοντες, χώραν περιβεβλημένῳ πολλήν.
cf. generally delta 321, delta 324, delta 325, delta 327.
[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica. The headword must be quoted from somewhere (perhaps Plato, Republic 330E, though there are other possibilities; cf. e.g. under delta 1071).
[2] An approximation of Procopius, Secret History 1.13, describing the shamelessness of the wife of Belisarius. Cf. kappa 536.
[3] Attributed to Eunapius by Bernhardy, comparing frs. 66-67 FHG (4.44). (Odysseus sheds his rags -- and proceeds to kill his wife's suitors -- at the beginning of Homer, Odyssey 22.)
[4] Perhaps quoted from Herodotus (3.35.4 or 9.73.2).
[5] Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 2.6.24.
