Outside lexicography, grammars and scholia, this noun (here in the nominative singular) is attested only once, in the epic dative plural: Homer, Odyssey 21.111; and it is from commentary to that passage that most if not all of the attestations derive.
For the (commonplace) glossing noun cf. under pi 2852, sigma 589.
