[1] The headword is genitive plural of skh/nhma (cf. sigma 573, sigma 574). It is presumably from the quotation given, where it is governed by the preposition e)/cw.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpts made for Constantine Porphyrogenitus), unidentifiable; but see already at eta 148, with the note there.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; history
