The headword phrase, genitive plural, might be quoted from somewhere as a whole, but see n.1 below.
(The adjective in it literally means washed together by the waves: see LSJ s.v.)
[1] Likewise in Photius and other lexica, but without 'fellows'. That fact suggests that only the adjective is actually quoted from anywhere -- either Plato, Axiochus 369A, or Lucian, De mercede conductis potentium familiaribus 24, to judge from the scholia there (noted by Adler); cf. also Hesychius sigma2174.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable.
Keywords: biography; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; history; imagery; military affairs; philosophy
