[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica: see the references at Photius mu266 Theodoridis. The headword is perfect active participle of mu/w (a verb often used of eyes: see LSJ s.v.), in the neuter nominative/accusative plural or masculine accusative singular. It must be extracted from somewhere (other than the epigram quoted below: see n. 4). Theodoridis (above) notes Coraes' suggestion that the third glossing participle, transmitted as kekollhme/na, should be kekalumme/non.
[2] Homer, Iliad 24.420 (web address 1); cf. the corresponding scholia.
[3] Greek Anthology 6.115.1 (generally attributed to Antipater of Sidon), on the horns and hide of a bull killed by Philip of Macedon; also quoted at delta 361 and omicron 501. See Gow and Page (vol. I, 27); (vol. II, 71-73); and further excerpts from this epigram at alpha 621, alpha 1542, beta 529, and epsilon 2968. Orbelos (which is also referred to in beta 412), modern-day Slavyanka or *)/orbhlos, is located on the border of southwestern Bulgaria and northernmost Greece. See location at web address 2. Scholars generally (cf. Gow and Page (vol. II, 72)) identify the hunter of the epigram as Philip V of Macedon (238-179 BCE; cf. phi 355 and OCD4 s.v. Philip(3)).
[4] The participle in this quotation comes from mu/zw "mutter, moan."
