[1] This nominative plural, with the same or similar glossing in other lexica (references at Photius alpha835 Theodoridis), is presumably quoted from somewhere; and see in any event under sigma 1097.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.252.3-4 (Antiphilos), on a quince; cf. alpha 904, alpha 4212, mu 934, pi 3074. Here (as in mu 934) the lexicographer omits after "equally-downy" Antiphilos' "as newly-grown ones"; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 92). See also Gow and Page (vol. II, 117) and further extracts from this epigram at kappa 2502 and sigma 903.
[3] Comparable comment, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (839).
