[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica, including Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon. The headword adjective, as the second gloss shows, is masculine/feminine accusative plural. Apparently, it purports to be quoted from Plato's Alcibiades 1, but in fact the phrase from there is mis-quoted (here and in several of the paroemiographers); cf. note below. (Plato, Phaedrus 258E, has the corresponding nominative plural.) Either, therefore, the misquotation was entrenched early enough to generate this glossing or else accusative a)ndrapodw/deis is extracted from somewhere else -- such as Xenophon, Memorabilia 1.1.16 or 4.2.22.
[2] Meaning in practice crudely close-cropped; cf. alpha 2157.
[3] Diogenianus 1.73.
[4] Imperfectly quoted from Plato, Alcibiades 1.120B (web address 1 below).
