Clumsily abridged from Harpokration s.v. Lousieus (sic), i.e. this deme's demotikon, mentioned in Hyperides fr. 92 Jensen. While supplements can, as indicated, bring logical sense to the entry, it is actually one of many where the Suda shows no awareness of the distinction between the collective name of a deme and its (singular or plural) demotikon.
