Ἐξέδρα. ὁ δὲ κατῆρχε χωμάτων, τὸ μὲν κατὰ τὴν Βόρειον ἐξέδραν, ἣ μεταξὺ τῶν δύο πυλῶν ἦν. καὶ αὖθις: κατῴκουν πλησίον τοῦ μουσείου καὶ τῆς ἐξέδρας.
Notes:
[1] [Polybius] fr. 140 Büttner-Wobst. In fact, as a TLG search shows, a clumsy abridgement of Josephus, Jewish War 6.150. Büttner-Wobst notes (532) that Valesius (Henri de Valois 1603-1676) attributed this fragment to Polybius. However, this attribution was rejected by Schweighäuser, with whom Büttner-Wobst remains in agreement (ibid.).
[2] Diogenes Laertius 4.19 (of Polemon's pupils).
