[1] The headword is neuter nominative/accusative singular of h(li/kos. Same or similar glossing in other lexica. Properly, h(li/kon and phli/kon are correlatives, though in the passage which follows Polybius uses toiau/thn with h(li/khn (both in the feminine accusative singular).
[2] Polybius 3.94.9 (web address 1). On Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus "Cunctator" see alpha 971, chi 240.
