The headword is in the accusative case, extracted from Homer: see next note.
[1] Same glossing in other lexica, and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 5.308, where the headword occurs (web address 1).
[2] Greek Anthology 7.172.3-4 (Antipater of Sidon), while trying to drive birds away from his crops, a farmer is bitten by a viper; see already at alpha 3313 and kappa 2231, and again at chi 207; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 18-19); (vol. II, 51-52); and this epigram's further extracts at beta 308, epsilon 1287, omicron 971, and psi 75.
[3] A very rare word indeed, either a variant of or a mistake for r(inoto/ros ["leather-piercer"]; see LSJ s.v.
