(Entry lacking, according to Adler, in mss AV.)
The unglossed headword, a nominative plural, is unattested outside the Suda, and the translation of it given here is speculative. The entry is probably drawn (as Adler notes) from phi 869, where the same passage of Aristophanes (see n. 1 below) is quoted with the same mistake, a mistake which yields the current headword.
[1] A misquotation of Aristophanes, Birds 765 (web address 1), which in place of the current headword fa/tores has fra/teres ("phratry-men"). The same passage is also quoted, without this error, in kappa 352.
