Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword is masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective (for which cf. psi 105, psi 106); masculine if, as it seems, it is extracted from Sophocles, Electra 426 (where a corpse is described as 'bare' and the scholia comment γυμνὸν τῆς κόνεως ).
[2] So too already in Hesychius.
[3] Polybius 11.1.12, concerning the Carthaginian war-elephants (web address 1).
