*(ima/sqlhn: ma/stiga. e)n *)epigra/mmasi: kw/phn q' a(/ma nho\s i(ma/sqlhn.
[1] The headword is accusative singular of this feminine noun; cf. scholion on Homer, Iliad 8.43, where it occurs (web address 1); also in other lexica.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.28.1 (Julian, prefect of Egypt); cf. iota 755. The thong of a whip is the flexible, tapered strap that attaches to the rigid handle. The oar moves a becalmed boat, just as a whip goads a stubborn ox. See additional extracts from this epigram at alpha 2652, gamma 456, and epsilon 265.
