The headword adjective is used mainly in poetry: the Aeolic/Doric form a)le- is attested in Sappho (fr.26,5) and Alcaeus (fr. 70,4), and possibly Theocritus, Idylls 15.4, where it is a conjecture for the paradosis a)de-. See LSJ at web address 1. It is rarely used in reference to persons, as the gloss (already in Hesychius eta338) seems to imply, but for an instance see Timon fr.808.3.
