Maybe it's a silly question, I'm not an academic either. But I don't understand the source of this definition in LSJ:

For example: "Chrysipp.Stoic.2.295, al., cf. IG5(2).268.15 (Mantinea, i B.C.)" what are those texts? Is there a list of abbreviations or something?

Thanks

Yes, if you see under the entry there is: "Abbreviations: ALL | General | Authors & Works"; click on "Authors & Works" and search for "Chrysipp". You will find:

Chrysippus Stoicus
[Chrysipp.Stoic.] 281-208 BCE Ed. H. von Arnim, SVF ii and iii pp. 1-194.

Oh now I see those links. They are not displayed in the mobile version.

However I still have some questions:

1- In that reference, I'm assuming that "al." implies there are multiple occurrences of the Greek word in the same volume. Do I get it right?

2- What does it mean IG5(2).268.15? I don't find the abbreviation for that.

3- Is Mantinea, I B.C the place and date where the manuscript was found?

Thank you for taking the time.

al.
alibi (i.e. elsewhere in the same author)
Index:Abbreviations/All - Ancient Greek (LSJ)

IG = Inscriptiones Graecae

3. I guess so
