Notes:
Same or similar entries in other lexica (references at Photius omicron376 Theodoridis), and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 4.126, where the headword is used (of an arrow: web address 1).
As presented by LSJ s.v., this adjective begins (in the Homer passage) by meaning the second of the two things glossed here; the first is attested later, in historiography and technical writings.
