[1] The headword is masculine nominative plural, aorist active participle of LSJ's a)ma/w (A); cf. alpha 1578, eta 318, eta 361. (In the gloss, the "not" makes no sense and should be deleted; cf. Photius s.v. and Hesychius s.v. a)mh/santa.)
[2] The same participle in the dative singular (from the quotation about to follow, though for the gloss cf. Homer, Iliad 24.451 with scholion).
[3] Greek Anthology 6.40.7-8 (Macedonius the Consul), a modestly successful farmer's dedication to Demeter; slightly differently at kappa 2090; see Madden (172-175). The plain between Corinth and Sicyon was famous for its fertile soil and abundant harvests; cf. Madden (175).
