[1] Likewise or similarly (minus the grammatical point) in other lexica. The headword is aorist active infinitive of qigga/nw (cf. theta 383). It must be quoted from somewhere (not necessarily the second quotation that follows here; Latte on Hesychius theta581 opts for Euripides, Alcestis 1117, and there are in truth numerous possibilities).
[2] Greek Anthology 7.232.2 (Antipater or Anyte), the epitaph of Philip's son Amyntor, who died in battle in Lydia; cf. Gow and Page, vol. I (40), vol. II (102); another excerpt from this epigram at iota 756; and, in n.2 thereto, notes on the problem of attribution. Lydia (lambda 783) is a region in western Asia Minor (present-day Turkey).
