The headword participle, masculine nominative plural, is similarly glossed in Photius (mu572 Theodoridis) and other lexica. It must be quoted from somewhere; perhaps Polybius 6.25.7 (of the leather coverings of early Roman cavalry shields), or Josephus, Jewish War 3.530 (of corpses).
A similar gloss appears in the scholia on Nicander, Theriaca 308 (where the lemma is μυδόωντες ).
cf. generally mu 1373, mu 1374, mu 1375.
[1] The present participle βρέχοντες is transmitted in the lexica; Theodoridis (above) declares his support for Naber's emendation to aorist βραχέντες
[2] Greek Anthology 5.198.3-4. 'Kypris' is Aphrodite (kappa 2738).
