To her they say Erichthonius first offered sacrifice on the [sc. Athenian] acropolis and built an altar, giving thanks to the earth for nourishment; [they say] that he established the rule that those who sacrificed to any god should sacrifice first to her.

Same entry in Photius (Lexicon kappa1035 Theodoridis; see the long note there). Adler suggests an attribution to Pausanias the Atticist (kappa40); perhaps ultimately from an Atthis, according to Jacoby.
For the adjective see already kappa 2192; and for Erichthonius see epsilon 3014.
