Cf. pi 2800.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica (references at Photius pi1294 Theodoridis), and cf. a scholion on Homer, Iliad 14.415, where πρόρριζος occurs. The lexica's πρόρριζον must be quoted from somewhere else; there are numerous possibilities.
[2] Sophocles, Electra 512, with scholion.
[3] (Addendum lacking, Adler reports, in mss AF.) Bernhardy thought that this should be πρὸς ῥιζῶν ; cf. pi 2800.
