= the first part of a longer entry in Etymologicum Magnum 219.56. Also, variously, in other lexica: see notes below.

[1] Hesychius gamma74 has an entry equivalent to this, except that both lemma and gloss are accusative case, rather than the Suda's nominatives. This perhaps derives (as Latte suggests) from commentary on 1 Kingdoms (=1 Samuel RSV, etc.) 7.9 LXX. Compare Anecdota Graeca (Bekker) 229.22.
