[1] The Suda's glosses, also in Photius and elsewhere, do not relate to the attested usage of the verb in tragedy, noted there (see Aeschylus, Eumenides 36 [web address 2], cited by Latte on Hesychius s.v., where the gloss is metewri/zein). See however Plato, Laws 672C (on the behaviour of young animals: web address 3) and the scholia there.
