Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica: see the references at Photius mu518 Theodoridis, where the editor claims the headword as quoted from the Septuagint (4 Kingdoms 5.2; other instances [DW] in 6.23 and 13.20). See also mu 1226 for more on the military use of the word. It is not extant before the Septuagint, but it is used to gloss oi)o/zwnos "alone and girt up, lonely wayfarer" in the scholia to the quoted passage of Sophocles.
[2] Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 846-7 (web address 1); cf. preceding note.
