[2] Likewise in Photius and other lexica, and cf. also Pollux 1.209. The headword is third person singular, present indicative active, of e)fedreu/w. It must be quoted from somewhere; there are numerous possibilities.
[3] Adler tentatively attributed this quotation to Aelian. In fact, as a TLG search reveals, it is Josephus, Jewish War 4.223. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXIV.
