Greek Original:

The headword (which must be quoted from somewhere) is accusative plural of this feminine noun. For its cluster of meanings see LSJ s.v.
[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica, and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 24.274, where the singular of the headword occurs.
[2] Agathias, Histories 5.22. For 'skiffs' see epsilon 1937.
[3] A garbling of Greek Anthology 6.334.3-4 (Leonidas of Tarentum), a dedication of cakes and wines to rustic gods, which has tetraglwxi/n ["four-angled", i.e. square] for the lexicon's petra\ glwxi=nes; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 108), (vol. II, 311-313), and another extract from this epigram at pi 16. Also (but slightly differently) faulty at mu 313, q.v. To this point, Gow and Page (vol. I, 108) follow the Anthologia Planudea in reading tetraglwxi/n, whereas the Suda adapts its rendering from similar alternatives among Anthologia Palatina texts.
