[1] Same equivalence in other lexica; references at Photius alpha309 Theodoridis. The headword, presumably quoted from somewhere (there numerous possibilities), is masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of the adjective (also used as a substantive, as the present entry illustrates) a)gwgo/s; see LSJ s.v.
[2] George of Pisidia, Heraclius' Expedition 3 fr. 49.
[3] See generally chi 418.
[4] Masculine accusative plural of the headword, again extracted from somewhere -- perhaps Thucydides 2.12.2, which generated scholiastic comment.
