The substance of this entry comes from the scholia to Aristophanes, Acharnians 1112, where the noun mi/markus occurs in the accusative case (web address 1). The Suda's mima/rhs, otherwise unattested, is therefore presumably a corruption of this.
[1] For the noun xordh/ see chi 396 (with LSJ s.v. II on its applied culinary meanings).
[2] Compare the notorious Spartan black broth (zeta 136).
