So in other lexica too (but with the headword name ending in Ionic -i/h). The phrase "hand of Akidalia" is preserved from Pindar (fr.244 Snell-Maehler): the nymph of the spring? In any event, the Akidalia spring itself is mentioned at the end of the long fragment of the Plokamides (Braids), by the hellenistic poet Menophilus of Damascus, preserved in Stobaeus 4.21a.7.
