[1] The headword, genitive singular of this feminine noun, has the same or similar glossing in other lexica. It is evidently quoted from somewhere (cf. anyway under psi 158).
[2] The noun comes from a)nw- and a reduplicated o-grade of the root of e)/xw; hence the spelling a)nokwxh/ is to be preferred; cf. pi 689.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; military affairs
