[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword -- third person singular, present indicative active, of this verb -- must be quoted from somewhere. (Extant possibilities are all late.)
[2] On the daduch in Athens, selected from the aristocratic genos of the Kerykes, cf. delta 1210 and see generally R. Parker, Athenian Religion (Oxford 1996) 300-302.
[3] Councillor, epithet of Artemis, Hestia (as at beta 424) and other gods.
[4] Persephone; cf. kappa 2077.
[5] Aelian fr. 10d Domingo-Forasté (10 Hercher): the tale of a daduch corrupted by Epicureanism.
[6] Aelian fr. 10d Domingo-Forasté (10 Hercher) again; cf. gamma 504, chi 349. NB: Stratokles was ineligible to be daduch himself, as the phrase here implies; so it is perhaps a chronological indicator, i.e. before the decree of Stratokles in 302 BC which (for the benefit of Demetrius Poliorcetes) tampered with the timing of the Eleusinian Mysteries; see generally C. Habicht, Athens from Alexander to Antony (Cambridge Mass. 1997) 79-80).
