Greek Original:
Ἔκπλεα: πλήρη. ἐσθῆτας δὲ καὶ τὰ ἐπιτήδεια ἔκπλεα παρεῖχεν. ἀντὶ τοῦ αὐτάρκη. καὶ αὖθις Αἰλιανός: οἱ δὲ κατάραντες εἰς αὐτόν, καὶ φιλοφροσύνης ἐκπλέας ἀπολαύσαντες.
[1] = Anecdota Graeca I 214.9 (Bachmann); also in ps.-Zonaras, who goes on to give the quotation which immediately follows. The headword, neuter plural of the adjective ἔκπλεος , is presumably extracted from it.
[2] Quotation (again at epsilon 2685) unidentifiable in this full form, but perhaps a distant memory of Iamblichus, Life of Pythagoras 5.21: λογισάμενος ὅτι εὐπειθῆ ἕξει, εἰ τὰ ἐπιτήδεια ἔκπλεά τις αὐτῷ ἀμεριμνοῦντι παρέχοι .
[3] Aelian fr. 145 Domingo-Forasté (142 Hercher).
