[1] The headword -- presumably, though not demonstrably, extracted from the quotation given -- is perfect active participle of oi)da/w or oi)de/w, neuter nominative/accusative singular; cf. omicroniota 30, omicroniota 37, omega 16, omega 21. For the meaning cf. Hesychius omega88.
[2] This material has been claimed for Damascius, Life of Isidore (fr. 308 Zintzen, 35 Asmus) but a TLG search shows that it actually comes from Synesius, Dio 2 (16-21).
