*)eskiotrofhme/na: *)aristofa/nhs: a)po/maktra skuta/lwn e)skiotrofhme/na.
(This entry, which occurs out of alphabetical order, is absent, Adler reports, from mss FV.)
The quotation appears to be an abridgment or corruption of one that is also alluded to (without attribution) at alpha 3433 (cf. Lexica Segueriana 129.2; Photius Lexicon alpha2564). An emended form of this is assigned to Aristophanes fr. 667 Kassel-Austin (712 Kock). The headword may be an error for e)skiagrafhme/na ('shade-drawn'; cf. alpha 3061 and Hesychius alpha6049).
