Similar entry in other lexica, and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 7.337, where the headword occurs -- but NB: it should be spelled dei/momen (a short-vowel aorist subjunctive). Additionally, the Suda would have done better to follow Hesychius and the scholiast in glossing with oi)kodomh/swmen or oi)kodomh/somen.
