The nominative plural headword, an Ionic/epic form, is evidently quoted from somewhere -- very probably Homer: see Iliad 12.54 (crags), Odyssey 12.59 (rocks). Rather than than glossing it directly, the lexicographer gives the koine form as a second headword, which is then glossed.
In Synagoge epsilon640 and Photius, Lexicon epsilon1481, this second headword is the only headword. Otherwise all three entries are identical.
