Notes:
[1] The headword adverb is probably quoted from Homer: Iliad 3.213 (web address 1), or Odyssey 18.26 (web address 2). In both passages it is in a phrase describing speaking; cf. Etymologicum Magnum 367.3 and, more remotely, Synagoge, Hesychius epsilon5362, Etymologicum Gudianum 512.5.
[2] Aelian, History of Animals 7.7 (which contains a related but different and much rarer adverb), citing Aristotle.
