Notes:
One of the many Suda entries which differentiate between words that, by this time, were indistinguishable in pronunciation
[1] From πεῖρα "trial, attempt"; cf. alpha 3128 (web address 1). (Likewise in Hesychius. Gloss from the scholia to Homer, Iliad 12.304, where the headword occurs.)
[2] From πέρας "limit, boundary" (web address 2). (Likewise, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. Now the headword is feminine, and therefore surely stems from Homer, Odyssey 10.195, decsribing Circe's island.)
