[1] = Synagoge, Photius pi343 Theodoridis. The headword, evidently quoted from somewhere, is the aorist passive participle, masculine/neuter genitive singular, of pari/hmi.
[2] = Synagoge, Photius pi342. This lemma, also extracted from somewhere, is the same participle as the primary headword but in the masculine nominative singular.
[3] cf. Hesychius pi766 (on Homer, Iliad 23.868, according to Adler); Suda pi 587.
[4] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
[5] Adler could not find this passage in Josephus, but it is in fact a faulty abridgement of Josephus, Jewish Wars 3.332, which has parei=san in place of the Suda's parei/qhsan, yielding the meaning "they let their right hands drop" (i.e. ceased their resistance). See in brief Theodoridis in his Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXVIII.
[6] Diodorus Siculus 31.5.3 (= Constantine Porphyrogenitus, Excerpta de legationibus 19).
