Same entry, post-Suda, in Etymologicum Magnum 42.44-47, which goes on to quote Homer, Iliad 7.197-199. The headword -- connected with alpha 678, q.v. -- occurs in the mss of line 198 there (dative case); and 'inexperience' is the gloss of the scholia thereto, and also in other lexica (Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, Hesychius). However, while this form does occur in Homer (Odyssey 12.41), at Iliad 7.198 modern editors print its opposite, i)drei/h| (from Aristarchus et al.), which the sense requires.
cf. generally iota 131, iota 133.
