The headword is the present indicative active, third person singular, of the verb sfu/zw, I throb, beat violently; see generally LSJ s.v. It must be quoted from somewhere; there are numerous possibilities.
[1] The initial gloss is the same verb form as the lemma, but from e)pei/gw, I press hard, by weight; see generally LSJ s.v. The second part of the gloss -- for which cf. the glossing at sigma 1759 -- includes the present indicative, third person plural, of the verb a(/llomai, I spring, leap, bound, pulse, quiver; see generally LSJ s.v. The headword is identically glossed in the Synagoge (sigma414) and Photius' Lexicon (sigma885 Theodoridis), and cf. already Hesychius sigma2933.
[2] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
[3] George of Pisidia, Heraclias 3 fr. 1 Pertusi.
