[1] = Synagoge pi743, probably from commentary to Homer's Odyssey where the headword, a feminine noun in the dative singular, occurs frequently in a formulaic line describing hand-washing (e.g. 1.136, 4.52, 7.172, etc.). For the first gloss (apparently a misinterpretation) see Apollonius Sophistes, Homeric Lexicon 135.33, and cf. Hesychius pi4100. For the nominative form of the same noun, see pi 2937.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.292.5-6 (Hedylus), also quoted at kappa 241. The word for 'pitcher' here is not the headword, but an apparently synonymous variant, proxo/h.
