Greek Original:

The headword is masculine accusative singular of neuter nominative/accusative singular of this adjective. It is probably quoted from Homer (or Homeric scholia): smerdale/on appears 12 times in the Iliad (e.g. 2.334) and five time in the Odyssey (e.g. 8.305). But see also Nicander, Theriaca 161, with scholion.
Same gloss in Hesychius (sigma1231), along with fobero/n "frightful."
