Outside this entry and the derivative one in ps.-Zonaras 795, this nominative plural form of the headword noun is attested only in Pollux 10.23. Thus, if it is quoted from somewhere in that form, the source is indeterminable. But perhaps the entry is generated by the genitive plural in Herodotus 6.91.2 (web address 1).
See also epsilon 2596.
[1] 'Pulled back and set to' is a rather recherché way of saying 'opened and closed', and recalls Homer Iliad 5.751 (web address 2).
