[1] The headword is feminine nominative singular of this adjective. It might be quoted from somewhere in this precise form, and, if so, perhaps from the quotation which immediately follows (other possibilities include Nicander, Theriaca 544); however, the glossing is essentially the same as that provided for the accusative r(adinh/n in Homer, Iliad 23.583; cf. the scholia there, and other lexica.
[2] Synesius, In Praise of Baldness PG 66.1189b.
[3] Greek Anthology 5.131.1 & 3.
[4] Greek Anthology 5.281.1-2.
[5] An approximation of Greek Anthology 7.200.1-2; the poem has te/rpomai "I delight" instead of fqe/comai, fqo/ggon (accusative singular) instead of fqo/ggwn (genitive plural), and pteru/gwn "wings" instead of stoma/twn.
