Notes:
[1] cf. generally omicron 683, omicron 690. The headword is in the accusative case, presumably (though not demonstrably) extracted from the quotation which immediately follows.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler suggests Aelian.)
[3] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler again suggests Aelian.)
[4] Portus added μὴ here, comparing omicron 688; other editors have rejected the emendation, comparing omicron 687.
Keywords: daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; religion
