[Meaning] pledges/securities. As lusima ["redeemable things"] and lutrosima ["ransomable things"].

LSJ s.v. lu/ma B records this meaning of the word only for the Suda (as distinct from its normal meaning in lambda 834). As a verbal noun, it would be derived from lu/w "loosen" rather than lumai/nw "spoil". The same definition occurs in Photius lambda484, and Theodoridis connects it there to e)ne/xura lu/sima "redeemable pledges" in Plato, Laws 820E. (The word occurs in Photius near to where, alphabetically, lu/sima would occur, which might suggest it was originally a gloss on lu/sima.)
