[1] The headword (and so this gloss) is dative plural, probably extracted from the second of the two quotations about to be given; alternatively, perhaps from Josephus, Jewish Antiquities 3.156.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.206.5-6 (which does not in fact illustrate the headword noun itself).
[3] Greek Anthology 6.207.5-6.
