The headword is a masculine noun in the nominative (and vocative) singular. See generally LSJ s.v. prw/n (the contracted form noted here).
[1] First, appended to the headword, is its genitive singular form as instanced in the quotation; the Suda (here and pi 2954) gives its only other attestations (Gow and Page, vol. II, pp. 254-5). [In her critical apparatus Adler reports that ms F transmits pre/wnos.] Then follow the contracted form in the nominative and its associated genitive. For all this, Adler cites for comparison ('cf.') Lexicon Ambrosianum 1191.
[2] The hunter Sosander's dedication to Hermes, Pan, and the Nymphs: Greek Anthology 6.253.1-2 (Krinagoras/Crinagoras); cf. pi 2954 (end), epsiloniota 14 (but with fre/atos, from a well), and sigma 937 (Gow and Page, vol. I, pp. 224-5). [Adler reports that ms G reads to/son and ms A omits u(/dwr.] See further extracts from this epigram at kappa 211 and pi 1671.
