One of the many Suda entries which differentiate between words indistinguishable (by this period) in pronunciation (although here the accentuation is different).
For the adjective dhnaio/s (first in Homer, Iliad 5.407) see generally LSJ s.v. (As to the glosses, the second element of the opening pair also occurs in Hesychius and in the scholia to Oppian, Halieutica 4.154, where dhnaio/n appears; the first element, 'year-long', is mysterious.) See also under omicron 796 and chi 208.
For the noun dh/neon see LSJ s.v. dh/nea (sic: only the plural is found outside lexicography); and for the gloss cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 4.361.
