Notes:
For this headword, a feminine noun most copiously associated with the taxation system of classical Athens, see also sigma 1386 (and cf. e.g. under alpha 2092, delta 529, eta 44, theta 12, kappa 1790, kappa 2562, omicron 104, sigma 100, tau 322).
[1] Same or similar glossing elsewhere: see the references at Photius sigma710 Theodoridis.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as a phrase from Belisarius' (beta 233) letter to Totila (tau 879) in Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 7.22.10. See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.XCV. (The 'work' is Rome.)
