Λαμπτῆρες: οἱ κατὰ τὴν οἰκίαν φαίνοντες λύχνοι. ἡνίχ' ἕσπεροι λαμπτῆρες οὐκ ἔτ' ᾖθον.
Notes:
Sophocles, Ajax 284-85, with comment derived from the scholia there; already at alpha 957. Tecmessa tells how the maddened Ajax rushed forth in the late night to attack, as he supposed, the Greek kings.
According to Adler, the lexicographer had access to the text of Sophocles and to scholia (p. xviii). For quotations from the Ajax in reference to Tecmessa (tau 246) cf. alpha 2363, alpha 4737, beta 210, delta 380, omega 32, omicroniota 195.
