Notes:
= Synagoge lambda125, Photius lambda366 Theodoridis; all derived from commentary on Lucian, How to Write History 57, which explains the somewhat opaque gloss. Lucian was using the headword (in the accusative, as opposed to the nominative given here) figuratively to describe verbal excess and overindulgence.
cf. also lambda 633.
