Genitive plural of this adjective (omicron 909), quoted from somewhere -- probably Homer (Iliad 16.224: web address 1), but also in Aristophanes (Frogs 1067; cf. the scholia there). Similar glossing in other lexica, and in a scholion on Homer, Iliad 10.134 (where the feminine nominative singular occurs).
