Likewise in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon (and again, post-Suda, in the Etymologicum Magnum). The headword phrase, in the accusative case, is a version of baqei=an a)/loka in Aeschylus, Seven Against Thebes 593 (web address 1 below).
The noun -- the subject of the initial glossing -- can be, variously, au)=lac (alpha 4433), a)/loc (alpha 1323), w)=lac.
