Same entry in ps.-Zonaras. The headword is a single word in the Greek.
This kind of mitra (mu 1136) was 'a piece of armour, apparently a metal guard worn round the waist' (LSJ); and Sarpedon's Lycian warriors are so described by this headword in Homer, Iliad 16.419. (But Nonnus later uses the word of women's dress.)
