Notes:
[1] Similarly in other lexica. This primary headword itself is masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of the poetic adjective ἀείδελος . It has perhaps been extracted from somewhere in this form; alternatively it has been generated by Hesiod's use of this adjective (noted in lexica, where a neuter plural is quoted: fr. 67b) to mean unseen.
[2] Neuter singular. Same lemma and gloss transmitted at Photius alpha406 Theodoridis, though the former should be ἀηδές .
[3] Damascius, quoted from delta 436.
