I'd be inclined to view that as a list of lists. Despite the importance of
such a structure in Comp Sci, TEI lists can't nest directly. But, partly for
that very reason, <list> is in the content model of <item> hence:

<list>
  <item>
    <list>
      <item>Augustus 212.</item>
      <item>Aureliae zie Orleans.</item>
   </list>
  </item>
 <item>
    <list>
      <item>Backer, Nicolaas 84*.</item>
     <item>Bajazet 220.</item>
   </list>
 </item>
[etc]
</list>

If you really want the <lb/> explicitly encoded (rather than having a
presentation rule for nested lists that would insert a wider break at
rendering time) then it could go into the containing <item>
