Notes:
[1] Same material in Photius and elsewhere; similar in Hesychius s.v. ἀκρωρείαις (dative plural). For the earliest attested instance of the headword see Xenophon, Hellenica 7.2.10, at web address 1 (accusative plural).
cf. tau 346, upsilon 571 and upsilon 654.
[2] This addendum is not in other lexica. For the feet of a hill (and by extension, of a mountain) see LSJ s.v. ποῦς II.1.
