Same entry in other lexica (see the references at Photius mu248 Theodoridis), and in a scholion on Thucydides 1.86.2, where mellh/somen and me/llousi occur (in the short speech by the Spartan ephor Sthenelaidas). The present headword must be quoted from somewhere else; perhaps Demosthenes 54.40, though there are numerous other possibilities.
