Notes:
[1] = Synagoge, Photius pi486 Theodoridis; probably originally from commentary on Homer, where the headword is often used in the sense of "fatherland" (e.g. Iliad 1.30), but cf. Hesychius pi1126, where this alternative meaning is also glossed.
[2] Apart from accent this word would have been homophonous with the headword in later Greek.
