[1] Headword and glosses are in the dative plural; cf. Hesychius theta966 and Photius, Lexicon theta98 (taken to be from scholia to Homer, Iliad 14.181 where this form appears: web address 1). Yet both present only the second of the two glosses offered here. For both glosses together, but in the nominative case, see Glossae in Herodotum 2.20 (a related word appears in Herodotus 2.81, but the nominative plural in 4.189: web address 2); cf. Hesychius theta959. Homer uses the nominative plural at Iliad 2.448 (web address 3).
[2] Greek Anthology 6.202.1-2 (Leonidas of Tarentum), a dedication of garments to Artemis after childbirth; cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 107), (vol. II, 309-310), and these lines again at kappa 2733. The phrase 'maiden doors' means those 'of the temple of the Virgin Goddess' (LSJ s.v.)
