[1] The headword is feminine accusative plural of this adjective, presumably extracted from the quotation given (though see also e.g. Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 1.295). The glosses are paralleled in other lexica and in the scholia to Homer, Iliad 13.97 (where the genitive singular occurs).
[2] Greek Anthology 6.270.3-4 (Nicias: addressed to the goddess of childbirth). Read oi(= "her" instead of the Suda's toi "you".
[3] cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 21.281.
