Notes:
[1] = Synagoge phi161, Photius phi246 Theodoridis. The headword is accusative plural of this masculine noun, evidently quoted from somewhere. (Extant possibilities begin with two in Plato: Republic 563A, Laws 779D.) For similar glossings in other cases and numbers, cf. ps.-Herodian (Epimerismi 147.7), Pollux 4.44, Phrynichus 124.7, Moeris phi36, Hesychius phi722, Etymologicum Gudianum 556.3.
[2] cf. ps.-Herodian, Philhetairus 313. Usually the derivation is conceived of as going in the other direction, since the noun of the headword is a specific application of the more general sense found in the related verb; contrast the citations of ps.-Herodian and Et. Gud. in n. 1.
[3] This addition, lacking (Adler reports) in mss AF, is probably drawn from phi 803.
