Greek Original:
Δρυμός: ὁ σύνδενδρος τόπος. ἐν τοῖς δρυμοῖς αὐτόματος ἐξάπτεται φλὸξ τῶν δένδρων ὑπὸ σφοδροῦ πνεύματος κινουμένων καὶ ἀλλήλοις ἐντριβομένων.
Notes:
[1] cf. scholion on Homer, Iliad 11.118, where the headword occurs in the heteroclite plural δρυμά (web address 1). See also delta 1530, delta 1541, and - for this word as the name of a city -- delta 1543.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler but identifiable via the TLG as an approximation of a passage of Theodoret, Interpretatio in Psalmos (PG 80.1537, on Psalm 82.15 LXX). See on this Theodoridis' Photius edition, vol.II p.LXXXI.
