Vetting Status: high

Greek Original:
*da/kes: oi( nu=n *patzinaki/tai lego/menoi. h( eu)qei=a *da/kos, tw=| da/kei. *da/kh kai\ *da/keta, qhri/a i)obo/la e(rpeta/. kai\ *dake/tas o(moi/ws.
Notes:
[1] The gloss, Patzinakitai or Patzinakai, is common in late sources; especially in Constantine VII, De imperio adminstrando. See generally OCD(4) s.v. Dacia.
[2] The entry here lurches sideways into consideration of the neuter noun dakos ("biting animal", related to the verb da/knw; cf. delta 21, delta 22).
[3] Likewise in other lexica. Latte on Hesychius s.v. regards da/kh as quoted from Euripides, Hippolytus 646.
