The headword, nominative plural, might be quoted from somewhere in that form but is more probably generated by the oblique cases in the two quotations given.
[1] Polybius 4.5.9-10 (here abridged).
[2] Polybius 20.1.1 (cf. Livy 35.45.9-46.1). These two quotations in the Suda comprise the whole of the passage. In the first passage 'they' are the Aetolians and 'the king' is Antiochus, who is also the 'he' in the second passage.
On the apokletoi of the Hellenistic Aetolian League see generally J.A.O. Larsen, Representative Government in Greek and Roman History (Berkeley & Los Angeles 1966) 84-85
