The headword participle, masculine nominative plural, is similarly glossed in Photius (mu572 Theodoridis) and other lexica. It must be quoted from somewhere; perhaps Polybius 6.25.7 (of the leather coverings of early Roman cavalry shields), or Josephus, Jewish War 3.530 (of corpses).
A similar gloss appears in the scholia on Nicander, Theriaca 308 (where the lemma is mudo/wntes).
cf. generally mu 1373, mu 1374, mu 1375.
[1] The present participle bre/xontes is transmitted in the lexica; Theodoridis (above) declares his support for Naber's emendation to aorist braxe/ntes.
[2] Greek Anthology 5.199.3-4 (Hedylus), Aglaonice dedicates clothing items after attending a symposium and then spending the night with her lover; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 100) and (vol. II, 290). 'Kypris' is Aphrodite (kappa 2738). Although they hesitate to accept it (ibid.), Gow and Page note that in a lemma the Anthologia Palatina scribe designated C (the Corrector) identified Aglaonice as a hetaera (cf. epsilon 3265 and epsilon 3266); cf. (vol. I, 100).
