[1] = Synagoge, Lexica Segueriana 332.15, Photius pi379 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius pi819. See also pi 546, kappa 471.
[2] Exact source unknown, but probably a reference to the Life of St. Anthony by Athanasius. There the headword occurs a number of times (9.8, 12.12, 14.8), most notably when the saint faces the demons of his temptation by reciting Psalm 25:3 LXX (27:3 KJV), "though an host (parembolh/) should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear," employing the headword in a broader sense than the glosses elsewhere in the entry indicate.
[3] = Onomasticon Tacticon 33; cf. Asclepiodotus 6.12.
[4] = Onomasticon Tacticon 48; from Aelian, Tactica 31.
