[1] The headword is nominative plural of this neuter noun. Earlier, Hesychius (epsilon5244) had glossed the singular similarly, and Latte there claimed this as quoted from a fragment of Isaeus. The Suda's plural is also, with the same gloss, in Timaeus's Platonic Lexicon, and thus more probably extracted from Plato, Laws 958E, than from the quotation given here.
[2] Aelian fr. 73f Domingo-Forasté (70 Hercher); cf. sigma 757.
