Popular lexicon of classical and biblical words, phrases, and personages, probably composed during the reign of Basil II (q.v.). The enigmatic title means "palisade," or, more loosely, "stronghold." Its value lies partly in its occasional mention of Byzantine writers (e.g., Menander Protector [q.v.]) and partly in the insight it provides into matters about which educated Byzantines of the late 10th century wanted to know. It is also a good example of how ninth- and 10th-century scholars attempted to organize the legacy of literature that Byzantium (q.v.) inherited from the ancient world.
