[1] The headword, with the same or similar glossing in other lexica, is a perfect passive participle in the masculine nominative plural. (For the verb cf. delta 154.) It has been extracted from Homer, Iliad 6.245; see the scholia there.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.131.1-4 (Leonidas of Tarentum), where the text reads *Palla/di tou\s for the lexicon's *Palladi/ou. On this epigram, a dedication to Athena of spoils seized after a battle against the Lucanians, see Gow and Page (vol. I, 118), (vol. II, 345-346), and another extract from this epigram at alpha 1693. At the southern end of the Apennine Mountains, around 285 BCE Lucania (Barrington Atlas map 45 grids C3-D3) had been a military ally of Tarentum (to the east, Barrington Atlas map 45 grid F4) against Rome, but was more often engaged in hostilities with Leonidas's city; cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 344-345). It is thus natural to assume that the occasion of this dedicatory epigram was a battle between these two as adversaries. Gow and Page emphasize, however, that there is in fact no compelling evidence that this assumption is correct (ibid.).
