Likewise in the Lexica Segueriana (421.6). The headword adjective, as glossed, is in the masculine accusative singular and must be quoted from somewhere. Clement of Alexandria preserves such an instance, referring to a kite. In other grammatical cases the adjective is used literally of a hawk in Homer, Iliad 13.62 (web address 1; for further literal applications see LSJ s.v.) and figuratively of ships in Aeschylus, Suppliant Women 734 (web address 2).
