Greek Original:
*)iluspw=ntes: suneilou/menoi. ei)s te/lma bou=n e)mpeso/nta kai\ i)luspw/menon e(/ws teqna/nai.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword as transmitted appears to be the present active participle, masculine nominative plural, of i)luspa/w, a verb usually (as in the quotation below) used in the middle voice. Theodoridis on Photius s.v. obelizes i)luspw=ntes and notes variants elsewhere (e.g. i)lispw=ntes in Hesychius iota567), without firmly choosing one.
