[1] This gloss appears in a scholion to Lucian, How to Write History 57, where the related noun lixnei/a occurs; cf. lambda 631.
[2] Thus far (including the first gloss) = Synagoge lambda126, Photius lambda367 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius lambda1178.
[3] Aelian fr. 46a Domingo-Forasté (43 Hercher). Pherekratte is probably a slip for the name of the goddess Pherephatte (Persephone); cf. pi 1560, where the same quotation occurs with the reading Pherephatte. If it is not an error it could conceivably be yet another form (otherwise unattested) for the goddess's name, or a play on a name of an otherwise unknown courtesan or on the comic poet Pherekrates. [Adler reports that Ms M as well as correctors to mss AG offer *ferekra/ths (Pherekrates); in the context this could only be the genitive singular form of a feminine name Pherekrate, which is morphologically unlikely.]
