Greek Original:
Παταγοῦσι: ψοφοῦσιν. ἐπιπαταγοῦντες κώδωνί τινι καὶ τυμπάνῳ ὕπερθε τοῦ φόρτου οἱ βάρβαροι. καὶ αὖθις: ὁ δὲ λανθάνει, τοῦ πνεύματος σφόδρα παταγοῦντος.
The headword is a denominative verb from πάταγος (pi 770, pi 771, pi 773), here in the present indicative active, third person plural. (For the glossing cf. Hesychius s.v. παταγεῖ .) It must be quoted from somewhere: probably Aristophanes, Clouds 378 (cf. the scholia there), though there are other possibilities, including Sophocles, Ajax 168.
[2] Part of Menander Protector fr. 10.3 Blockley. Here the verb is the compound ἐπιπαταγέω .
[3] Adler attributed this tentatively to Iamblichus; now Iamblichus, Babyloniaca fr. 116 Habrich.
