Greek Original:
Γάζα. καὶ Γαζοφυλάκιον, θησαυροφυλάκιον. γάζα γὰρ θησαυρός. πολλὴν δὲ εὗρεν ἀφθονίαν τροφῆς καὶ γάζαν βαρβαρικήν, ἀργυρίου δὲ τάλαντα γ#. ὁ δὲ Πτολεμαῖος τὰ βασίλεια περιάγων ἐπεδείκνυτο καὶ τὴν ἄλλην τὴν βασιλικὴν γάζαν. Διόδωρός φησι.
The unglossed primary headword is probably the feminine noun γάζα which features in the first paragraph of the entry proper; but of course it is also, as Gaza, a toponym.
