= Synagoge phi159, Photius phi246 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius phi717, Etymologicum Gudianum 355.5-7. This form of the adjective, masculine singular nominative, is not attested outside lexicography and is probably a generic lexical reference. Adler cites the scholia to Homer, Iliad 16.159, where the word occurs in the nominative singular neuter. See also Hesychius alpha1944.
