Θαλεροί: δίϋγροι, νέοι, ἀκμαῖοι, ἢ ταχεῖς. οἱ δὲ ἐπιλεξάμενοι τοὺς θαλεροὺς τῶν Ἰσαύρων ὥρμησαν ἐπὶ παράλογον πρᾶξιν. καὶ Θαλερώπιδος ἠριγενείης, τῆς εὐπροσώπου ἡμέρας.

[1] The headword is masculine nominative plural of this adjective. Same or similar glossing in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 3.26 (where it occurs, in a simile, of huntsmen: web address 1).
