[1] = Lexica Segueriana 228.16; and cf. a scholion on Homer, Odyssey 2.319 (where the headword occurs: web address 1), as well as Hesychius epsilon4527. Similar too, but less so, are Hesychius epsilon4526, Lexica Segueriana 252.21, and (post-Suda) Etymologicum Magnum 357.16.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. Certain features of the language might suggest a late source, esp. the use of the headword without an objective genitive (though cf. already Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 2.1280, 4.1380).
