Notes:
[1] [Adler's text, reproduced here, has a rare misprint: κατὰ τὸν ὤμων . Bernhardy (1853 edition, available on Google Books) reads κατὰ τῶν ὤμων with the article in the genitive plural agreeing with the noun.] Same glossing in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, and in a scholion on Homer, Iliad 15.352 (where the headword adverb occurs: web address 1).
[2] Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews 5.305 (web address 2); cf. epsilon 1430. For Sampson see generally sigma 87, sigma 88.
