Same entry in Photius and elsewhere, i.e. with the accusative case of the noun antanaklasis as headword. In Hesychius, however, the headword is the feminine present participle a)ntanaklwme/nh (quoted from the Septuagint: Wisdom of Solomon 17.18), a proper grammatical fit with the Suda's glossing phrase.
