[1] This noun is related to the verb e)/xw. At Herodotus 1.171 the word is neuter o)/xanon (plural o)/xana). Shield-grips were allegedly invented by the Carians.
[2] Sophocles fr. 611 (672 Radt); cf. Hesychius omicron2055 and Photius, Lexicon omicron725 Theodoridis. The noun o)/xos (omicron 1032) comes from the root vex-.
[3] Likewise or similarly in other lexica (references in Photius omicron726 Theodoridis), and in a gloss on Herodotus 2.141.5, where ta\ o)/xana occurs. (The dative plural must be quoted from somewhere else.)
