The headword (for which cf. omicron 101) is used mainly in poetry; the two glosses -- each of which can embrace a range of military projectiles -- are common in all genres. (The second of them is the Latin word sagitta, for which see Lewis & Short s.v.). Likewise in other lexica; references at Photius omicron156 Theodoridis.
