The headword, extracted from the quotation eventually given, is the perfect participle, masculine nominative plural, of the verb fusiggo/omai. Aristophanes, Acharnians 526–527, with scholion on 526; cf. phi 860, and see Dübner (below) 16.
[1] The scholion has le/getai, omitted by the lexicographer.
[2] Line 521 has already mentioned the association between the Megarians and garlic bulbs.
[3] The line ends po/rna du/o, omitted here. For Aspasia see generally alpha 4202.
