[Used] with an accusative. [Meaning] I murder.[1] Also [sc. attested is the aorist infinitive] a)poktei=nai ["to kill"], [meaning] to murder. Also [sc. attested is] a)poktei/nh|s ["you would kill"], aorist subjunctive.[2]
Also [sc. attested is the participle] a)pokteno/ntwn ["with them killing"].[3]

See also alpha 3372.
[1] This primary headword should be understood as the present a)pokte/nnw (late form for a)poktei/nw, see LSJ s.v.) rather than the future a)poktenw=. The Suda generally neglects the distinction between single and double consonants.
[2] Evidently quoted from somewhere; there are numerous possibilities from the C5 BCE onwards.
[3] Present active participle, genitive plural, also presumably quoted from somewhere; extant possibilities are few and late.
