After a long time without a computer, I return to b-greek!

2 Peter 2:2 reads:
My question is this: which is the antecedent: POLLOI or AUTWN? Most
commentaries I have access to confidently assert POLLOI, but do not give
any reasons. but I would have thought that AUTWN, being closer, would
certainly qualify as well.
How can I decide? Are there general rules to follow when gender and number
do not nail it? Which grammatical textbook discusses this????
