Derived from Theodoret (PG 80.1320a-b), on Psalm 59[60 KJV].8 LXX.
The headword phrase, in the accusative case here as in the Septuagint (and cf. kappa 2536), is commonly translated as the Valley of Succoth, using the original Hebrew form of a proper place-name which Theodoret interprets as a common noun.
