[Meaning with] oil, or another unguent.[1]
The standard: that the [derivatives] from a)lei/fw, if they are formed with a pi, are also written with a diphthong, such as a)leipto/n ["anointed"] or a)lei/pths ["anointer"]. But if they are formed with a phi, then if they are compound they are written with an iota, [like] pissalifh/s ["pitch-smeared, tarred"], a)nhlifh/s ["unanointed"]. But if [they are] simple, [they are written] with a diphthong, such as a)/leifar ["anointing-oil"].[2]

The dative headword has the same or similar glossing in other lexica; it is evidently quoted from somewhere. (There are three instances in the early part of Homer, Iliad 24, and Latte on Hesychius s.v. regards the source as the first of them: 24.45.)
