[Meaning] medicines, things that heal.[1]
"Avoiding the guards she ran up with her daughter, carrying a remedy for the coming shortage."[2]
"There was a man in the Galeotis, formidable both in telling cures of diseases and in remedying a time of bad season, and in figuring out in times of infertility and crop failure through certain religious rites how to change and in offering certain useful solutions. Minos summoned this man to Crete, they say by gifts, so that he might track down the celebrated disappearance of Glaucus."[3]

[1] Same or similar glossing in Photius and other lexica, and in the scholia to Homer, Iliad 15.394, where famously this neuter plural occurs (of Patroclus applying remedies to the wound of Eurypylus (see Archeologia Homerica (1983) 108, 125ff.; not stitching but herbs to soften the pain).
[2] Quotation unidentifiable.
[3] Aelian fr. 107 Domingo-Forasté (104 Hercher). This is a fragment concerning Polyeidos (Polyidus), a celebrated mantis (seer and oracle-giver), mentioned by Homer. See in brief OCD(4) p.1177, under Polyeidus(1). Sophocles and Euripides wrote tragedies about him, Aristophanes a comedy. In this story (given in Hyginus, Fabulae 136) Polyidus divined where the body of Glaucus, the son of King Minos of Crete, was to be found in a jar of honey and restored him to life with herbs indicated by a snake.
[4] So too in other lexica. In the accusative case, presumably quoted from somewhere.
