[1] The headword is third person singular, aorist indicative middle, of pra/ssw/pra/ttw. It might be extracted from the second quotation given below, though other lexica have just this headword and gloss (for the glossing cf. generally epsilon 2857, pi 2229, pi 2232). Theodoridis on Photius s.v. suggests that the source is Plato, Gorgias 511D [and again 511E: DW.] Extant possibilities, in truth, are numerous: Thucydides, Xenophon, Isocrates, Isaeus, et al.
[2] Quotation (also in ps.-Zonaras) unidentifiable.
[3] Again, quotation unidentifiable. (Adler suggests Aelian.)
