[1] Same or similar material in other lexica; references at Photius pi512 Theodoridis. The nominative plural headword occurs (e.g.) in the Septuagint (Wisdom of Solomon 17:2) and also as the curious name of a city on the Adriatic coast mentioned by ps.-Scylax; nevertheless, despite Theodoridis' citation of the Septuagint passage, it is perhaps here because it was the title of two comic plays (see under kappa 213 and kappa 2339).
[2] Adler cites the same entry in the unpublished Ambrosian Lexicon (376).
