[2] This gloss is confined, Adler reports, to mss GM. It is paralleled in ps.-Herodian, Epimerismi 73.11 and, according to Adler, the Ambrosian Lexicon (1903), and cf. also: the scholia to Aeschylus, Seven against Thebes 495; to Oppian, Halieutica 1.334; to Nicander, Alexipharmaka 586; Athanasios, On the Psalms 27.557.22; Cyril of Alexandria, On the Psalms 69.1128.35.
[3] Bernhardy deleted this part of the entry. It is possible that it belongs not here but at kappa 2793, where a quotation in the entry contains this participle and the lemma is the uncompounded form of the same participle (κυτώσαντες ). This form also appears in tau 1164 (where it is used to describe the making of a drum), but neither it nor any other form of the compounded verb is attested elsewhere.
[4] Quotation (anticipated at kappa 998?) unidentifiable.
