[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius sigma918 Theodoridis. See generally LSJ s.v. on the adjective sxolai=os and the noun sxolaio/ths. The lexicographers' sxolai=on and the two forms of the comparative must be quoted from somewhere. Theodoridis offers options for sxolai/teron in Thucydides (2.75.6, 4.47.3, 7.81.2; cf. sigma 1800), Plato (Theaetetus 206D, Republic 10.610D), Xenophon (Anabasis 1.5.9) and Demosthenes (21.221).
