[Meaning a] befriender.[1]

Greek Original:

cf. generally delta 613, delta 614.
[1] Likewise in other lexica -- but the form of the glossing noun is problematic. For the Suda Adler prints filw/ths (otherwise unattested), while noting the ms variants filo/ths and filiwth/s. If filo/ths ('friendship') is correct, the lexicographer has mistaken the nomen agentis diallakth/s for an abstract noun meaning roughly 'reconciliation'; the other lexica, however, appear to confirm filiwth/s (cf. LSJ s.v.).
[2] Aristophanes, Birds 1682 (using the related verb; cf. delta 619, delta 620), with scholion.
