Notes:
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon. The headword, a feminine nominative plural, occurs in Homer, Odyssey 9.221 (web address 1). For its sense -- poorly understood and conveyed here; better in the scholia to that passage, and similar comment elsewhere -- cf. mu 687.
For the adjective ὕπαρνα cf. (e.g.) Euripides, Andromache 557 (web address 2).
