Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius pi31 Theodoridis. The headword noun is in the accusative plural, evidently quoted from somewhere; extant possibilities begin with Plato (Gorgias 456E) and Aeschines (1.10 & 187). For the glossing cf. also a scholion on Plato, Lysis 207D, where the accusative singular occurs. See also epsilon 1424.
[2] Addendum lacking, Adler reports, in mss AFV.
