[1] The headword (neuter plural) has the same or similar glossing in other lexica; see the references at Photius lambda13 Theodoridis. It is presumably quoted from somewhere, perhaps the Septuagint: Latte on Hesychius suggests Numbers '6.5' (= 6.15), and one could add e.g. Exodus 29.2, Leviticus 2.4 & 7.12.
[2] cf. generally Etymologicum Magnum 554.11-13.
[3] An approximation of Aristophanes, Wasps 674. See again at lambda 14; also eta 589, tau 886.
[4] Adler cites as a parallel for this material 2 Kingdoms 6:19 LXX. TLG searching shows that the second half of it is also, verbatim, in Constantine Porphryrogenitus, De virtutibus et vitiis 1.55.24-26.
