[1] Thucydides 8.42.2 (web address 1): "the left wing [of the fleet]". "horn" is used here in the sense "wing" (of an army or fleet): LSJ s.v. V.3.
[2] Thucydides 8.25.3 (web address 2): "while the Argives rushed forward on their own wing".
[3] This is pointed out by the lexicographer because it did not correspond to the spoken language: the genitive ke/ratos is in regular use from Xenophon onwards.
