[1] i.e. having many drugs. Adler suggests (and Wendel [below] p. 43 agrees) that this may be a gloss on Callimachus (Hecale fr.364: contextless, so could be either masculine/feminine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular). The neuter nominative/accusative plural appears with an equivalent gloss in a scholion on Nicander, Theriaca 875. And see generally LSJ s.v. poluqro/nios (sic).
[2] Homer, Iliad 22.441 (web address 1), with scholion.
Carl Wendel, review of Adler Part IV and Part V: Gnomon 15 (1939): 42-46.
