Similar, though not identical, entry in some other lexica. The headword adjective (cf. delta 1513) is here in the dative plural and must be extracted from somewhere. There are several extant possibilities (all post-classical), including Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 19.20, and Cyril of Alexandria, Commentarius in Isaiam prophetam PG 70.1065.41 (on the powers with which God is effective in the human world).
