= Synagoge epsilon575; Photius, Lexicon epsilon1352. Headword and gloss are aorist active participles in the masculine accusative plural; cf. Lexica Segueriana 226.14, where the same headword and gloss are presented in the nominative plural.
As noted by (e.g.) Theodoridis on Photius, the present headword is probably quoted from its only independent attestation outside lexica and scholia: Demosthenes' Second Olynthiac, i.e. Demosthenes 2.30 (web address 1). There, having created the image of a system of Athenian political factions which behave like tax-symmories, he urges his fellow-citizens to 'remit' it. The extant scholia to this passage gloss the word in a similar, but not identical fashion.
