Likewise in other lexica; references at Photius omicron71 Theodoridis. See also omicroniota 37, omicroniota 31, omicroniota 32, omicroniota 27, omicroniota 28. The headword (which must be quoted from somewhere) and glosses, although synonyms in careless Greek, have different semantic histories and overtones. The headword refers to soft, painless swellings (Galen, cited in LSJ; cf. omicroniota 31). The first definition, originally from a root of fire, implies the angry swelling of inflammation and the associated discharges (see phlegm, phi 523); the second, the perfect indicative passive of the verb fusa/w 'blow (e.g. with bellows, or of the action of the wind)', implies swelling caused by gas or air. All may refer metaphorically to "puffed-up" arrogance; cf. omicroniota 37, etc.
