Notes:
[1] The headword, illustrated by both of the quotations given, is (intransitive) aorist active infinitive of ἐξίστημι ; cf. epsilon 1661, epsilon 1770, epsilon 1771, epsilon 1772.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler, but a TLG search reveals it to be Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews 3.68. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXIII.
[3] Adler's note reads 'Plut. vid. Cass D. 1 p.CVIII'. More simply, it is Plutarch, Sulla 22.2.
