Notes:
[1] There were places of this name in (modern) Iraq, near the site of a famous victory by Alexander the Great, and Israel/Jordan.
[2] The gloss is extraordinary as it stands. Corrupt? A comic fragment?
[3] Tragedic vocabulary: see generally LSJ s.v. Hesychius has this entry in the genitive case, which Latte regards as quoted from Euripides, Orestes 140 (Doric); for the nominative, see Bacchae 638.
