Headword: Σάλουσα
Adler number: sigma,59

[Meaning she who is] cogitating.[1] For a thought [is] a cogitation.[2]
Greek Original:
Σάλουσα: φροντίζουσα. σάλα γὰρ ἡ φροντίς.
The headword -- evidently extracted from somewhere -- is attested only in lexicography and with this accentuation only in the Suda. It is apparently the extrapolation of a present active participle, in the feminine nominative (and vocative) singular, from a Doric or Aeolic substantive (cf. sigma 41, with corresponding gloss); cf. sigma 58.
[1] The gloss is the present active participle, feminine nominative (and vocative) singular, of the verb φροντίζω , I consider, reflect, take thought; see generally LSJ s.v. The headword (but for the difference in its accentuation) is identically glossed in Hesychius (sigma122) and in Photius' Lexicon (sigma52 Theodoridis).
[2] A similar gloss is given at sigma 41; cf. Synagoge s.v. σάλος , and Photius loc.cit.
