[1] Thus far the entry = Synagoge, Photius mu424 Theodoridis; cf. Hesychius mu1292. The secondary headword μητρολῴας (attested in e.g. 1 Timothy 1:9), translated here as "mother-beater", is in fact an orthographic variant for the primary one, μητραλοίας (attested in e.g. Aeschylus, Lysias and Plato). For yet another mother-abuse word see mu 1007.
[2] From the dream-interpretations, in verse, ascribed to Astrampsychus (alpha 4251); cf. pi 1250.
