[1] (Adler notes here but does not adopt the emendation in the Suda editio princeps: 'from enemies'.) The headword, neuter plural, and this initial gloss are derived from the Synagoge sigma139 (Cunningham); likewise Photius, Lexicon sigma381 Theodoridis (Porson 525.10), where similarly 'from enemies' is advocated.
[2] See lambda 158 for this distinction in reverse.
[3] Greek Anthology 6.161.1-2, from an epigram by Crinagoras of Mytilene written in 25 BCE in honour of Marcellus, nephew of Augustus, upon his return from the war against the Cantabri in north-western Spain.
