The headword is a neuter noun, largely confined to poetry, from the root for swelling (omicroniota 30).
[1] cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 21.234, where the headword occurs (dative case). Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius omicron75 Theodoridis.
[2] A poetic phrase associated with Gregory of Nazianzus: see Poems about himself (Carmina de se ipso) PG 37.971.10, Poems which relate to others (Carmina quae spectant ad alios) PG 37.1536.7, and cf. Carmina moralia 770.1). Its antecedents lie in (e.g.) "fierce swell" at Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 4.947, and Greek Anthology 9.36.4; see also Greek Anthology 6.30.3, and Aristophanes, Birds 250 (e)pi\ po/ntion oi)=dma qala/sshs).
