I read a definition of the word "pylon" in Merriam Webster dictionary which was

A tower for supporting either end of usually a number of wires over a long span

I suspect that "ends" could also be used there counting wires individually. But the author might have used "end" because he thought of wires as a bundle. Am I right?

There must be singular in combination with either (either end = each end of those 2 a wire has; that remains true for a number of wires).
