Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword, accusative singular of ὑπόβαθρα , must be quoted from somewhere; there are numerous possibilities, all post-classical.
[2] An over-abbreviated version of Diogenes Laertius 1.94, on Periander (tyrant of Corinth); the woman, we read there, was either struck with a stool or kicked (while pregnant). Here the neuter noun ὑπόβαθρον is used.
