[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon. The headword is neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective (for which see already delta 1336, with equivalent glossing for the plural). It might be extracted from the quotation given, but more probably from Homer (e.g. Iliad 13.162, 15.474).
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable; and what the last part of it means is unclear.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; military affairs; trade and manufacture; zoology
