Notes:
[1] For this verb cf. alpha 2219, delta 215, delta 323, delta 328, epsilon 214. The present headword (with same or similar glossing in other lexica) is evidently quoted from somewhere; extant instances are all post-classical.
[2] For this verb cf. delta 325.
[3] Aelian fr. 250b Domingo-Forasté (252 Hercher), cf. alpha 1968 and alpha 2328, and again omicron 944 and omicroniota 147.
