Notes:
[1] The headword (presumably extracted from the first quotation given though also illustrated by the others) is neuter plural nominative/accusative of e)pith/deios; cf. epsilon 2687, epsilon 2688.
[2] Quoted already at epsilon 575.
[3] Adler could not find this phrase in Xenophon, but there are several of which it could be a paraphrase or approximation. Closest comes Anabasis 3.1.19 (w(s de\ a)/fqona ta\ e)pith/deia), but see also Hellenica 3.2.2 and 4.1.15, Memorabilia 2.1.9, Cyropaedia 3.3.23.
[4] From Arrian, Parthica or Ab excessu Alexandri 16.
