[1] The neuter plural headword, presumably extracted from somewhere, is a variant of pe/teura. It is glossed, here and in other lexica, by a word transmitted as a transliteration of the Latin signa; Theodoridis on Photius pi817 expresses approval for Musurus' emendation to ti/gna.
[2] Babrius 124.13-15. The Vatican codex of Babrius reads "if you kill me the hour-prophet" (to\n w(ro/mantin).
