Notes:
[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica, and in a scholion on Plato, Erastai [Lovers] 135E. According to LSJ s.v., the nominative is sigu/nhs or si/gunos, often written (as in the accusative plural transmitted here) with double nu.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.93.2-3 with scholion, quoted already at pi 1736; the correct reading may be sibu/nhn "hunting spear" (cf. sigma 363).
