= Photius, Lexicon pi1203 Theodoridis, from Aelius Dionysius. The headword is a comic coinage (Comica adespota fr. 1125 Kock, 533 K.-A.); otherwise unattested outside lexica and grammars.
Aelius, Photius, and Eustathius (in his Commentary on the Iliad) spell the word with omicron, prodosi/kompos; manuscripts GVM of the Suda agree, Adler reports, but the omega is required by alphabetical order (and meter).
