Notes:
See also sigma 717, sigma 718.
[1] Likewise in the Synagoge (sigma141) and Photius' Lexicon (sigma388 Theodoridis). Theodoridis endorses Naber's view that the headword comes from the Septuagint (Exodus 40.4, dative plural there).
[2] From glosses on Herodotus 3.137.2, where again the dative plural occurs.
