[1] Callimachus, Hecale fr. 355 Pfeiffer. Hesychius omicron503 also uses sth/rigma to gloss the word.
[2] Pfeiffer believes this is also from Callimachus' Hecale, and counts it as fr. 356. The o)kx- variant of the o)x- stem (o)xh/, o)xe/w) is unattested outside Callimachus (via the lexicographers).
