Here the Suda juxtaposes two adjectives (both in the masculine accusative singular or neuter nominative/accusative singular, evidently quoted from somewhere) which sounded similar in Byzantine pronunciation.
Similarly in other lexica.
[1] From klh/dwn "omen." This adjective occurs in the genitive plural in [Lucian], Amores 39.
[2] From klu/dwn "wave, rough water"; for the gloss cf. delta 1610.
