[1] = Synagoge; Photius, Lexicon epsilon2367. The headword is accusative singular, masculine or feminine, of this adjective; the gloss can only be masculine accusative singular (assuming it is not, in this context, neuter nominative/accusative plural). The headword must be quoted from somewhere; there are numerous possibilities. (The two quotations that follow exhibit different forms of the headword.) See also epsilon 3817.
