[1] Likewise in Hesychius and elsewhere. The headword is feminine nominative singular of this (mostly) epic/poetic adjective. It is quoted, in Latte's view, from Homer, Iliad 5.379 (cf. the scholia there), where it refers to a battle-cry (a feminine noun: phi 842).
[2] No such mountain is otherwise attested. An error for alphaiota 375?
