Greek Original:
Ἐδωδίμων: βρωσίμων. ἐπείπερ οὖν τὴν προπαρασκευὴν αὐτοῦ ἀγνοοῦντες οὐδὲν ἐδώδιμον ἐποίησαν ἐν ἀποθέτῳ, λυπρᾶς οὔσης αὐτῶν τῆς γῆς, καὶ πάσης ἀθρόον ἀγορᾶς διακλεισθέντες.
Notes:
cf. generally epsilon 231, epsilon 253.
[1] The headword, genitive plural, has the same glossing in other lexica. It must be quoted from somewhere (other than the quotation given, which has a neuter singular); there are numerous possibilities, extant from Aristotle onwards.
[2] Once attributed to Polybius (as his fr. 120), and Adler suggested Aelian -- but now assigned by A. Favuzzi to book 30 of Diodorus Siculus: see at alpha 3680, and cf. delta 584, epsilon 1102.
