[1] = Synagoge pi676; Photius, Lexicon pi1321 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius tau1155, pi3753. The headword is neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective, evidently extracted from somewhere (other than the quotations given, which have other forms); there are numerous possibilities. See also the gloss at lambda 578.
In the two quotations given the appropriate translation for the adjective is 'exposed'; cf. LSJ s.v., 2.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti -- as is the one following) unidentifiable. It contains the feminine accusative plural of the adjective. For the etesian winds cf. epsilon 3309.
[3] Quotation (containing the masculine nominative singular of the adjective) again unidentifiable.
