Greek Original:
Ἐντείνας ἑαυτόν: Διόδωρος: ἐς τὸν στρατιωτικὸν καὶ εὐτελῆ βίον ἐντείνας. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐπιδούς. καὶ Ἐντεῖναι, τανύσαι. καὶ Ἐντείναντες, ἐπιθέντες. πληγάς τε ἐντείναντες τῆς κεφαλῆς ἀπετέμοντο. ἀντὶ τοῦ αἰκισάμενοι. καὶ αὖθις: πληγάς τε τοῖς προσπίπτουσιν ἐντεινόμενοι.
[1] Diodorus Siculus fr. 6 Walton (30 Dindorf).
[2] (Adler cites Ambrosian Lexicon 1052.) This and the participle which follows are again quotations, presumably.
[3] Adler tentatively attributed this quotation to Aelian. In fact, as a TLG search reveals, it comes from one of the fragments of John of Antioch (295 Roberto).
[4] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 1.25.3 (the participle, though, should be singular).
