= (basically) Synagoge theta144; Photius, Lexicon theta292 Theodoridis. Here in the Suda the headword, genitive plural, seems to be glossed with nominative plural (neuter) nouns paired with dependent genitives. While there is much ms variation, the best readings of the Synagoge and Photius have genitive plurals for all four words of the gloss, making a series of parallel glosses: "of offerings, of scents, of aromas, of incenses."
Be that as it may, the headword itself is taken to be quoted from Herodotus 2.40.3 (web address 1).
