The headword, accusative plural, is presumably extracted from the first quotation given; same or similar glossing in other lexica.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable (Adler suggestes Eunapius); for its substance, however, cf. below.
[3] Callimachus, Hecale fr. 309; see already alpha 1517.
[4] Aristophanes, Lysistrata 808-811 (web address 1 below), followed by comment from the scholia there; cf. tau 632.
[5] Neanthes FGrH 84 F35; cf. sigma 797. Plutarch [Antonius 70.3] records that Timon was buried 'at Halai near the sea'. There were two Attic demes of this name, H. Aixonides on the SW coast and H. Araphenides on the NE. If Timon is a real person (for doubts see e.g. Aristophanes, Birds, edited with introduction and commentary by Nan Dunbar 708-9), he may have a second-century descendent -- from Halai Aixonides -- in Lexicon of Greek Personal Names ii s.v. no.21 (T. Menemachou).
