Greek Original:
Ἐγκύκλιον: ἁπανταχοῦ, καθολικόν. Εὐνάπιος περὶ Καρίνου φησίν: ἀλλ' ἦν ἐγκύκλιον αὐτῷ καὶ πρόχειρον τὸ τὰ τοιαῦτα ἁμαρ- τάνειν. τουτέστιν εἰς παῖδας ὑβρίζειν. οἱ δὲ ἀξιώματος ἀντιποιούμενοι τὴν ἐγκύκλιον ἐπαιδεύοντο παιδείαν. ἡ δὲ ἐγκύκλιος παιδεία διὰ πάσης ἐχώρει παιδεύσεως καὶ ῥυθμοῦ καὶ παντὸς κινήματος.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword is either masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective (for which see also epsilon 134). It is perhaps extracted from the quotation given here, though there are numerous other possibilities.
[2] See upsilon 15 (and generally kappa 391).
[3] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Knights 189, where education is the topic. The terms ῥυθμός and κίνημα might be technical here; in any event, no such education existed in the Athens of Aristophanes' day.
