Ὀργάς: ἡ εὔγειος καὶ σύμφυτος καὶ λιπαρὰ καὶ ἀκμαία γῆ. ἐνεκάλεσε δὲ ὁ Περικλῆς τοῖς Μεγαρεῦσιν, ὅτι τὴν ἱερὰν γῆν τὴν ὀργάδα ἐγεώργησαν. ἢ τὴν προσήκουσαν ὀργάδα κατανέμειν ἢ τὴν τιμὴν μόνοις διακρατεῖν. περὶ Ῥώμου καὶ Ῥήμου. καὶ αὖθις: τμήξας εὐαρότου ῥάχιν ὀργάδος.

[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius omicron437 Theodoridis.
[2] An episode from the build-up to the Peloponnesian War: see imprimis Thucydides 1.139.2, and alpha 2490. (For Perikles see generally pi 1179, pi 1180, pi 1181.) The present allusion to it was tentatively attributed by Adler to Aelian, but in fact it comes from Aristophanic scholia (to Acharnians 532 and/or Peace 605). See on this identification Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II pp.XCVIII-XCIX.
[3] By Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Roman Antiquities 1.79.12, the present version of which is garbled.
[4] Greek Anthology 6.41.5.
