[1] Epithet of Artemis; cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 5.53, where it appears as such; also other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon. The etymological gloss from xai/rein (repeated in the scholia to 5.447) is dubious; a derivation from xe/ein is more likely.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.9.1-2 (Mnasalces), a dedication of archery gear to Apollo; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 141) and (vol. II, 402).
