The neuter singular headword is presumably extracted from the first quotation given.
[1] Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 110-111 (which does not have "everything").
[2] This nominative plural has the same glossing in other lexica. It is evidently quoted from somewhere -- probably Thucydides 6.77.2 (a phrase quoted by Dionysius of Halicarnassus in his study of that writer).
[3] Euripides fr. 918 Nauck; cf. pi 40.
