[1] This gloss applies only to the first quotation given, where the belt is a Byzantine insignia of rank (see next note). In the second, and possibly in the third, the item in question is a money-belt.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable -- but seemingly faulty, in any event, as it stands. This translation adopts feminine genitive singular a)nazhtoume/nhs, from ps.-Zonaras, for the transmitted a)nazhtoume/nous (masculine accusative plural). Alternatively, with Bernhardy, construe basili/dos as an adjective and supply au)lh=s: 'they were seeking to expel from the royal court...', or something similar.
[3] Aelian fr. 84d Domingo-Forasté (81 Hercher). The story is told more fully at tau 636; see also epsilon 2821.
[4] From the dream-interpretations, in verse, attributed to Astrampsychus (alpha 4251).
