Similar material elsewhere, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon. The headword is in the accusative case, doubtless reflecting the many appearances in Homer of the formulaic phrase boh\n a)gaqo/s, "fine in his battle-cry". (Hesychius has a entry for that.) For the transference of the word to battle itself see Theocritus, Idylls 16.97, quoted in LSJ s.v.
