Greek Original:
Γωρυτός: θήκη τόξων. καὶ κατὰ γωρυτοῦ παρηρτημέναι τρεῖς ἢ πλείους ἄκοντες, πλατεῖς μὲν αἰχμάς, οὐκ ἀποδέοντες δὲ δοράτων μέγεθος. καὶ αὖθις: καὶ γωρυτοὺς πλήρεις ὀϊστῶν.
Notes:
cf. alpha 4293.
[1] From the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 21.54, where the headword noun occurs (web address 1).
[2] Josephus, Jewish War 3.96, describing the equipment of the Roman cavalry. Since there is no mention of their being armed as archers, the term quiver is evidently used loosely here.
[3] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
