Plural of this neuter noun (which also has a more technical sense: see under tau 96). Same or similar glossing in other lexica; references at Photius sigma844 Theodoridis. Adler calls the entry a 'gl[ossa] sacra'. If so, the entry is probably generated by such passages in the Septuagint as 2 Kingdoms 4.2 (genitive plural). See also e.g. Polybius 4.58.4.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; politics; religion
