Similarly already in Hesychius epsilon3112. The headword -- masculine nominative plural of ἔνιος (cf. epsilon 1327) -- must be quoted from somewhere, but is far too commonplace to track down.
The 'notable' sense is not registered by LSJ, and might simply be an over-interpretation of passages which contrast a large group with a smaller (notionally more select) one.
