[1] Present middle of i(/hmi, third person plural. Same glossing in other lexica (see the references at Photius iota40 Theodoridis); evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps, as Latte on Hesychius iota268 asserts, Homer, Odyssey 22.304); cf. in any case under alpha 898, iota 153, iota 206.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable (but NB: also in ps.-Zonaras, where it ends, surely more plausibly, with the aorist active infinitive krath=sai -- 'to overpower completely').
