Greek Original:
Ἐναγισμοί: ὁλοκαυτώματα. ἐναγισμῶν ἐνεστηκότων Ῥωμαίοις. ὀλίγαις δὲ ὕστερον ἡμέραις Χαιρέαν μοίραις ἐτίμησαν εἰς τὸ πῦρ τιθεμέναις. καὶ αὖθις: ταῦτα γὰρ ἡμῖν ζῶσιν ἔτι τὰ ἐναγίσματα Βιτέλλιος καὶ Οὐεσπεσιανὸς διδοῦσιν, ἵν' ἡμᾶς τοῖς πάλαι νεκροῖς καταθύσωσιν.
[1] The headword is a noun derived from the verb ἐναγίζω (epsilon 1092, epsilon 1093). Here in the nominative plural, with same glossing in other lexica; evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps Josephus, Jewish War 1.148, its only extant attestation outside lexica).
[2] A rejigged version of Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 19.272 (web address 1); after the execution of Chaireas.
[3] Cassius Dio 65.13.5 (an imaginary conversation between the soldiers of these two imperial rivals), with the related noun ἐναγίσματα .
