Notes:
cf. generally alpha 2095.
[1] The headword is feminine nominative singular of this participle, with the same glossing in other lexica. It must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps Appian, Italica 5.12.
[2] From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 1.450, where this participle appears.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable. (cf. bibliography below)
