Greek Original:
*fwla/di: e)mfwleuou/sh|. kai\ *fwla/dos, sphlai/ou kruptou=. *ba/brios: fri/cas de\ xai/thn e)/kqore fwla/dos koi/lhs. kai\ *fwla/s, ei)=dos no/sou. shmai/nei de\ kai\ th\n katoiki/dion o)/rnin, th\n e)pw|a/zousan kai\ klw/ssousan.
[1] The headword is dative singular of fwla/s (see LSJ at web address 1), and the glossing shows that it is feminine. Likewise in Hesychius, the Synagoge, and Photius' Lexicon (phi361, where Theodoridis claims the headword as quoted from Basil of Caesarea, Homilies on the Hexaemeron 9.3 (PG 29.193a)).
[2] Likewise in the Synagoge and Photius. Perhaps from the quotation which follows (see next note), though the earlier lexica do not have it.
[3] Babrius 82.3; cf. epsilon 449 and phi 718.
[4] Probably = fwlei/a (phi 645) in Plutarch, Moralia 2.971D; note LSJ s.v. fwleu/w.
