The headword occurs in this epic/poetic form 14 times in Homer (beginning with Iliad 3.140). The glossing 'of parents' is also in other lexica; references at Photius tau361, where Theodoridis obelizes the problematic addition 'or of children' and declares correct the version of the gloss in the Lexicon Cyrilli (tau215), gone/wn teko/ntwn ('of parents who had children').
Keywords: children; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic
