[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, and see also a scholion on Homer, Iliad 13.285, where the headword -- third person singular, present indicative active, of tarbe/w -- occurs.
[2] Sophocles, Oedipus at Colonus 292-3 (web address 1).
[3] An approximation -- illustrating the primary sense of the headword again -- of Sophocles, Trachiniae [Women of Trachis] 296-7 (web address 2): it should begin o(/mws d', not this kai\ mh/n, and the unmetrical dative plural toi=s needs to be toi=sin.
