[1] The headword, accusative plural, has the same glosses in other lexica (references at Photius pi1 Theodoridis); it is evidently extracted from somewhere. The remainder of the entry illustrates sayings (the first of them involving the dative plural of the headword) of the "hoist by his own petard" type.
