The primary headword is third person plural, present indicative active, of e)phluga/zw. This form appears in neither of the quotations in the entry; cf. epsilon 2172. Adler cites scholia to Lucian (25.5 Rabe) and to Plato, Lysis 207B, Lexica Segueriana 243.8 and Photius s.v. h)lu/gh, but these passages share little in common with the present entry aside from a different form of the headword (e)phlugi/zontai) and different forms of one or more of the many words used here as glosses. Citations of more similar texts are noted below.
[1] = Hesychius epsilon4553, possibly deriving from the scholia to Thucydides. Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon offers the same glosses in reverse order. This form of the headword does not occur in the received text of Plato but does occur -- albeit as subjunctive e)phluga/zwntai -- in the speech of Hermocrates of Syracuse in Thucydides 6.36.2 (web address 1), and a scholium to that passage offers one of the glosses presented here (Moeris 197.2 offers the other). Compare also Erotian 127-11-12 and, post-Suda, Etymologicum Magnum 356.2-3.
[2] At this point Adler cites the unedited Ambrosian Lexicon (1569).
[3] Aelian fr. 246 Hercher, 244a Domingo-Forasté (cf. epsilon 1137).
[4] Synesius, Encomium on Baldness 21.5 (PG 66.1204b), with minor textual divergences.
