The plural headword noun, as the glossing shows, is in the accusative case; it is therefore probably (if not demonstrably) extracted from the first quotation given.
[1] Polybius fr. 108 Büttner-Wobst. Büttner-Wobst notes that Casaubon attributed this fragment to Polybius (p. 529). Bernhardy emended the fragment, deleting kai\ a)peilh/seis, and intimidations, after a)nata/seis (ibid.).
[2] Polybius fr. 7 Büttner-Wobst. This Metrodoros (Metrodorus, cf. alpha 4656) could be the same general of Philip V that was victorious in Thasos (cf. theta 59; Barrington Atlas map 51 grid D3; Polybius 15.24.2, web address 1) in 202 BCE. This fragment, if genuinely Polybian, then indicates a subsequent political and military schism between the general and the king (Walbank, p. 745).
