[1] Sophocles, Ajax 308-9 (web address 1), with scholion. The headword is dative plural of e)rei/pios; cf. epsilon 2955, epsilon 3003. For r(iph/ see alphaiota 85, rho 178. (The nominative plural of it is presumably quoted from somewhere.)
[2] Adler reports the same material in the Ambrosian Lexicon (1934). This abstract noun is otherwise unattested except here and in ps.-Zonaras.
