The headword a)netu/feto is not the same as the verb in the quotation given (u(petu/feto in some mss, u(peti/qeto in others), and is in fact attested only here. Either this is a mistake or the headword is quoted from somewhere else.
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable. (Adler tentatively suggested Aelian.)
