Same entry in Hesychius, ps.-Zonaras and, according to Adler, the Ambrosian Lexicon. The headword occurs twice in Homer: Latte on Heschius s.v. asserts that it is quoted here from Odyssey 3.156, but there may be a better match in the scholia to Iliad 23.214.
cf. generally alpha 655.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic
