[1] Likewise in the Synagoge, Lexica Segueriana 352.3, and Photius pi1378 Theodoridis; similarly in Hesychius pi3928; and cf. pi 2845. The headword, masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective, must be quoted from somewhere (possibly the quotation given here, which has the neuter, though the other lexica do not give it).
