Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius omicron687 Theodoridis. The headword, in the accusative plural, is a hapax legomenon that appears at Homer, Iliad 2.153 (web address 1 below), "and they started clearing out the ship-trenches" (οὐρούς τ' ἐξεκάθαιρον ). The scholiast on that passage indicates that the word had been of interest to scholars at least as early as Aristarchus. Pollux 10.149 includes the headword under "equipment of a shiphauler" (νεωλκοῦ σκεύη ).
