"Cranes were grazing in a farmer's land recently sown with wheaten grain."[1]
For puro\s ['wheat'] [is] the grain.[2] Homer: "wheats and einkorns and wide-growing white barley."[3]
"They would be living on nothing but hares [...] and beestings and pot cheese, enjoying things worthy of the land and of the trophy at Marathon."[4]

For the headword phrase (in the dative case, as in the first quotation) Adler compares Lexicon Ambrosianum 1483.
[1] Babrius 26.1-2.
[2] A subsidiary entry on the noun (nominative singular) from which the adjective in the headword phrase derives; cf. [Herodian], Epimerismi 115.9, Hesychius pi4444. Lemma and gloss are repeated at pi 3230, and this part of the entry including the quotation from Homer is repeated at pi 3234; cf. sigma 502, eta 399.
[3] Homer, Odyssey 4.604. Here we have the nominative plural form of the noun, puroi/ ('wheats').
[4] Aristophanes, Wasps 709-11 (here abridged). The quotation does not contain the headword or anything related. Perhaps the compiler thought from the sound of the words that the 'beestings' (puo/s) and/or the 'pot cheese' (puria/th) had something to do with wheat (puro/s). 'The trophy at Marathon' refers to the great victory over the invading Persians, 68 years earlier.
