[1] Similarly in other lexica. The headword, masculine accusative plural of this adjective, must be quoted from somewhere (perhaps, though not demonstrably, the first Sophocles passage below). For the adjective see already epsilon 398, and cf. also epsilon 400; and for the twin meanings of it see LSJ s.v.
