Note:
Same or similar entry elsewhere (see the references in Photius mu544 Theodoridis), beginning with Hesychius mu1704, where Latte claims the headword as coming from Callimachus (Aetia fr.43.69 Pfeiffer; accusative plural there, nominative here). But alternatives should not be ignored, notably Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 2.381A-B; and see generally Xenophon, Anabasis 5.4.1ff, on the campaign of the Ten Thousand against the barbarous Mossynoikoi ("Towerdwellers") of the Black Sea (text at web address 1).
