[1] = Synagoge, Photius mu569 Theodoridis. The headword, feminine accusative plural of this adjective, is taken from Homer, Iliad 11.54; cf. the scholia there, and also e.g. Hesychius mu1773, Etymologicum Magnum 593.30.
[2] Sophocles, Electra 167, with the order of words reversed; cf. scholia ad loc. The quotation includes the feminine nominative singular of the headword adjective.
[3] mudale/on, the neuter singular nominative/accusative or accusative singular masculine, appears in Archilochus fr. 249, and elsewhere, including Hesiod, Works and Days 556. For the gloss see Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon (113.34) and Photius mu586; also Hesychius mu1776, who also includes a version of the next sentence (see n. 4)
[4] A paraphrase of what we find in Hesychius mu1776. Instead of 'blood' (ai(=ma), Hesychius has 'eye' (o)/mma), which makes better sense.
[5] The nominative singular masculine form of the headword adjective.
