= Aelius Dionysius beta14 Erbse, Synagoge beta14, Photius beta138 Theodoridis, apart from some discrepancy in the reading of the first gloss (see note 1 below). The headword (which must be quoted from somewhere) is third person singular, present indicative active, of biba/zw. See also Hesychius beta595.
[1] Maas (below) condemned suzeu/ei as an Unwort; he suggests that it is a corruption of suzeugnu/ei, which he says is in the Synagoge (beta45) according to his collation (a reading also adopted by Cunningham). Theodoridis on Photius beta138, after noting both this and Erbse's conjecture suzugei=, declares suzeu/ei defensible as a late coinage.
