[1] The headword is masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective (for which cf. kappa 1186, kappa 1188). Same glossing in other lexica (see the references at Photius kappa72 Theodoridis), and evidently quoted from somewhere (probably Homer, Iliad 8.84, to judge from the scholia there).
[2] Perhaps from an unidentifiable biblical commentary. The phrase e(/ws kairou= occurs quite often in the Septuagint, but it is not clear to which occurrence the present note might apply.
[3] Sophocles, Ajax 120 (web address 1).
[4] Sophocles, Ajax 34 (web address 2), with scholion.
[5] Cassius Dio 67.6.1; cf. delta 344 (on Decebalus, king of the Dacians).
