[1] Same glossing in Photius and elsewhere. The headword, nominative plural of a)nai/mwn, is quoted from Homer, Iliad 5.342, where it refers to the gods.
[2] Medical/zoological term; the opposite of e)/naimos (epsilon 1200). See also omicron 151.
[3] From the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 18.149, where this adverb occurs.
[4] Life of Daniel the Stylite 19, PG 116:996b.
[5] The reference is to the author of the Menologion of Basil II, Symeon Metaphrastes, often identified as Symeon Logothete. The entry for Daniel's festival on Dec. 11 [PG 117:201] refers, however, to wind [a)/nemos]. Rather than the Menologion, the reference is to the inscription quoted in the Life of St. Daniel the Stylite (409-493), c.36: "Upon a double column firm his feet are set; Ambrosial hunger, bloodless thirst support his frame."
