[1] = Synagoge kappa526. Similarly in Apollonius, Homeric Lexicon 105.28; Hesychius kappa4752; and cf. also kappa 2794, kappa 2795.
[2] Aristophanes fr. 727 Kock (747 Kassel-Austin).
[3] Thus far, the entry = Photius, Lexicon kappa1276 Theodoridis, except that Photius reads κατακεκαμμένη ('bent over') instead of the Suda's κατακεκυμμένη ('stooped over'). That the reading in Photius is not accidental is indicated by the use of the same gloss in Photius' separate entry on the 'all-stooping olive'. Theodoridis (at kappa1276 and Prolegomena lxvi) suggests that the Suda's reading may have been influenced by the presence of the gloss κεκύμμενον in the previous entry, kappa 2798. On the "all-stooping olive" (apparently a reference to Athena's olive tree on the Acropolis of Athens) see Pollux 9.17, alongside Hesychius alpha7851, pi23; Pollux 6.163.
[4] Greek Anthology 5.185.3 (Asclepiades). The subject is a fishmonger.
