[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius alpha203 Theodoridis. The headword, a dative plural, must be quoted from somewhere but is not independently attested.
[2] Quotation (which contains the headword noun in the accusative plural) unidentifiable; probably from a military narrative. In any event Adler tentatively suggests transmission via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti.
