Same entry in other lexica; references at Photius upsilon126 Theodoridis. The headword occurs in Homer, Iliad 2.350 and 8.470 as an epithet of Zeus (web addresses 1 and 2), but the masculine accusative singular there has been misinterpreted as a neuter plural by the lexica. (Theodoridis notes with approval Naber's proposal to change the glossing adjective to i)sxuro/teron.)
