Notes:
[1] The headword is presumably extracted from the quotation given: see next note.
[2] Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Roman Antiquities 13.12.2: the invasion of Rome by the Gauls in 390 BCE. The verb form is the perfect passive participle, masculine genitive plural, of καταθλέω . See kappa 556 and kappa 557 for the active meaning of the verb ('to wrestle down'). This active form, used intransitively, has sometimes the same meaning of 'being well trained' (Plutarch, Marius 26.10 and de Liberis educandis 2.2E).
