Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius pi280 Theodoridis. The headword is nominative or accusative plural of a neuter noun more commonly spelled with single mu. (For its cluster of meanings see LSJ s.v.) Theodoridis takes it to be quoted from the Septuagint (Exodus 35.11, pararru/mata there), but another attractive possibility is Xenophon, Hellenica 1.6.19 (on a protective feature of the Athenian triremes about to fight the battle of Arginousai in 406 BCE); see generally Lionel Casson, Ships and Seamanship in the Ancient World (Baltimore 1992) 249 with n.99.
