[1] Up to this point the entry = Synagoge epsilon668 and Photius, Lexicon epsilon1553 (cf. also Hesychius epsilon4799), and is probably based on commentary to Homer, Iliad 5.751 (web address 1), where the headword occurs. Compare the scholia both to that passage and to Iliad 21.535, along with Etymologicum Magnum 354.25.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. Perhaps [WH] an uncomprehending abridgment of Eunapius, Vita sophistarum 7.4.6: τὴν πρὸς Χρυσάνθιον αἰτήσας ἐπιστολήν, εἶτα εἰσβαλὼν ἐκείνην καὶ σφραγῖδα ἀμφοτέραις ἐπιθείς ).
