[1] The headword is imperfect active of katashmai/nw, third person singular, presumably extracted from the first quotation given. (The second quotation has aorist middle of the same verb.)
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. For "them," Bernhardy suggested dative au)toi=s instead of genitive au)tw=n.
[3] Aelian fr. 276 Domingo-Forasté (278 Hercher): contextless.
