Also [sc. attested is] a)postello/menoi ["dispatched-out men"]: not only those sent out on the basis of orders of dismissal, but also those who had been dismissed and were intending to go abroad were called 'dispatched-out'.
Also[2] [sc. attested are] a)postolei=s, the men assigned to the sending-out of triremes. But a)po/stoloi [are] the sendings-out of the ships. So Demosthenes, both in the [speech] Against Ktesiphon and in the First Philippic.[4]

Notes:
[1] Same glossing (of this feminine nominative plural) in other lexica. It is presumably quoted from somewhere; extant possibilities include Euripides and the Septuagint.
[2] Diodorus Siculus 13.67.2 (following Wessling's suntribo/ntwn in place of the MS suntribome/na, and the noun there may be e)mbolai/, rammings).
[3] The source now becomes Harpokration s.v.
[4] Demosthenes 18.80 & 107; Demosthenes 4.35.
