Notes:
The headword, a feminine noun in the nominative or accusative plural (related to the verb punqa/nomai: pi 3173, pi 3174, pi 3175), is presumably quoted from somewhere (although not from any of the quotations offered).
[1] = Synagoge pi820; Photius, Lexicon pi1582 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius pi4482 (singular). Taken to come from commentary on Thucydides 1.5.2 (cf. pi 1234).
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (The headword noun here appears in the genitive singular.)
[3] Here the nominative singular of the headword noun is presented and glossed for a different connotation. The following quotations illustrate that connotation, but do so with a different form of the noun (accusative singular in both cases). For this gloss Adler cites Lexicon Ambrosianum 1527.
[4] Greek Anthology 6.203.2-3 (Lacon or Philip of Thessalonica), quoted also at gamma 428, pi 883, delta 959 (q.v. for a note on the text of the epigram).
[5] Quotation unidentifiable, though Adler ascribes it to the Excerpta of Constantine Porphyrogenitus and cites Toup as associating the content with Cyrus the Younger (cf. kappa 2749). The glossing Adler ascribes to the source of the Lexicon Ambrosianum.
