[1] The headword (and so this gloss) is dative plural, probably extracted from the second of the two quotations about to be given; alternatively, perhaps from Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 3.156.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.206.5-6 (which does not in fact illustrate the headword noun itself). In the epigram, attributed to Antipater of Sidon, five young women dedicate items to Aphrodite; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 13); (vol. II, 38-39); and further lines at beta 310, epsilon 3743, theta 30, and kappa 1273.
[3] Greek Anthology 6.207.5-6 (Archias).
