An abridged version of this entry is oddly appended to tau 1092 in some mss.
[1] Adler cites the unedited Ambrosian Lexicon (767) as the source for this part of the entry.
[2] In Greek, the only difference between the two words is one of accent: the former (the headword) is proparoxytone (accent on the first syllable) and the latter is oxytone (accent on the last syllable). LSJ (web address 1) define the latter as an adjective ('[sc. something] vomited'), which it may be from a formal standpoint, but it is always used as a substantive, as it is glossed here (cf. Hesychius epsilon2260, epsilon2344). In addition to the meaning given here it can apparently be synonymous to the headword or can mean 'emetic'. All attestations, however, are confined to late Greek.
