Greek Original:
Ὄγμος: ἡ κατὰ στίχον ἔφοδος τῶν θεριστῶν. καὶ ὄγμοι σταχύων. καὶ Σοφοκλῆς: φορβῆς χρείᾳ στίβον ὀγμεύει τόνδε πέλας που. καὶ Ἐπόγμιος Δημήτηρ, ἡ ἔφορος τοῦ θέρους. ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: τὰν ὄϊν, ὦ Δάματερ ἐπόγμιε, τάν τ' ἀκέρωτον μόσχον.
[1] The headword has the same or similar glossing in other lexica (references at Photius omicron23 Theodoridis), and in a scholion on Homer, Iliad 11.68, where ὄγμον (accusative case) occurs in a simile (web address 1). The phrase ὄγμοι σταχύων , if it is the quotation it appears to be, looks like a version of ὄγμοι ... ἀσταχύων in the second Homeric Hymn, to Demeter (lines 455-6). See web address 2.
[2] Sophocles, Philoctetes 162-3 (web address 3), with the related verb ὀγμεύω .
[3] Greek Anthology 6.258.1-2, quoted again at omicron 95.
