Strictly speaking a lochagos is the commander of a lochos (lambda 718 and esp. lambda 719). But in the present instance this dative plural has very imprecise glosses and may therefore be quoted from a context where the precise sense does not apply -- such as Euripides, Troiades 1260.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; military affairs; tragedy
