[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica (including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon) and scholia; see the references at Photius kappa792 Theodoridis.
[2] Literally, "place for lying down". Similar meaning appealed to in kappa 1812. Both glosses as given in Hesychius ("tent; bed") and the Etymologicum Magnum ("tent and throne"); other lexica give the sense "tent" (see n. 1). LSJ distinguishes between sense I "hut, shed, booth" (including "cot, cabin") and II "anything for lying or sitting upon, couch or easy chair". Both senses are Homeric.
