[1] The headword is accusative plural of e)rgasth/r (a rather rare synonym for e)rga/ths). It is perhaps extracted here from the quotation given, though there is an earlier instance in Xenophon (Oeconomicus 5.15), noted by both Pollux and Stobaeus.
[2] Aelian fr. 262 Domingo-Forasté (264 Hercher). Adler agrees with Bernhardy in suspecting the reading ei)s au)to/n.
