Notes:
NB: this entry calls for more synonyms for smoke (noun and verb) than are readily available in English.
[1] Same or similar glossing, variously, in other lexica (and in a Lucianic scholion); and cf. tau 1211. The headword is actually feminine genitive singular -- not reflected in translation here -- of the present middle/passive participle of τύφω (LSJ entry at web address 1). It must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 4.139, the only instance extant outside lexica and scholia.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler notes Valckenaer's attribution of it to Aelian.) Possibly deriving from commentary on Homer, Iliad 9.243.
[3] (cf. ps.-Herodian 136.) This superlative is applied by Diogenes Laertius to two of his philosophical biographees: Xenocrates (4.11) and Arcesilaus (4.37). See LSJ s.v. ἄτυφος at web address 2.
