[oi)no/brwtos means the same as] o)rneo/brwtos.
Greek Original:
*oi)no/brwtos: o)rneo/brwtos.
The headword printed by Adler is indeed oi)no/brwtos, given by four manuscripts of the Suda but otherwise unattested in Greek literature. One manuscript (A) does however give the correct reading, oi)wno/brwtos, attested twice in the Septuagint (2 Maccabees 9:15; 3 Maccabees 6:34) and elsewhere (e.g. Strabo 15.3.20; Philodemus, On Death 33). See Photius, Lexicon omicron170 Theodoridis, with other references there.
