Accented thus, the headword normally serves as an adjective ('blemished', 'maimed'), but is glossed here with nouns. As a noun the headword is normally accented si/flos (see ps.-Herodian, De prosodia catholica
All three of the glossing nouns are normally subjective in sense ('fault-finding', etc.), but the translation given here takes advantage of rarer objective uses so that they can fit better with the headword. The first gloss = Hesychius sigma778, Synagoge sigma96, Photius sigma256 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius sigma777 and a scholion to Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 1.204. For the second gloss, cf. a scholion to Homer, Iliad 14.142, where a related verb (glossed in sigma 508) occurs; Adler also cites Lexicon Ambrosianum 300. On Hesychius sigma778 Latte cites Callimachus fr. 276 Lloyd-Jones/Parsons, where the headword occurs in ambiguous grammatical circumstances. There are similar but independent glosses in ps.-Zonaras 1643.
