[1] Tentatively identified by Adler as proverbial; in any event, obscure. The headword, as accented, is attested only as the vocative of υἱός ("son"), not obviously what is intended here. Something is probably missing.
[2] Imperfect of ὕει "it rains," cf. upsilon 121, upsilon 126, upsilon 127. Likewise or similarly in other lexica (references at Photius upsilon29 Theodoridis); quoted from Homer, Iliad 12.25.
