[*muzei=] and [with different accentuation] mu/zei: [meaning he/she/it] laps, licks.[1]

[1] The verb is attested as mu/zw and also as a contract verb, muza/w or (as would be required here) muze/w; cf. mu 1384. In the present context, nevertheless, other lexica (references at Photius mu574 Theodoridis) have only the mu/zei version of this headword, evidently quoted from somewhere.
[2] Xenophon, Anabasis 4.5.27 (web address 1), quoted already at alpha 964.
