[1] For this glossing cf. the scholia to Aristophanes, Frogs 903 (next note). That passage, however, has the masculine dative plural of the adjective; the headword itself is neuter nominative/accusative singular, evidently quoted from somewhere else.
[2] Aristophanes, Frogs 903-4 (web address 1 below); see already alpha 1233; also epsilon 1526, lambda 441.
