The headword (if correctly transmitted: see below) is perfect passive participle of e)nteutlano/omai; here feminine genitive singular, presupposing the eel which the hungry speaker is addressing.
[1] Aristophanes, Acharnians 893-4 (web address 1), itself a parody of Euripides, Alcestis 367-8 (web address 2). The preceding comments are drawn verbatim from the scholia to the Aristophanes passage. Some editions of Aristophanes print a conjecture of F.H.M. Blaydes (1818-1908), e)nteteutliwme/nhs, in place of the headword in its present form, but the paradosis reading is defended by Olson, among others. In place of 'be separated' (xwrisqei/hn), the mss of Aristophanes read 'be separate' (xwri\s ei)/hn).
