Hesychius delta2553 has the same headword (a nominative singular) but glosses it with the phrase κακὸν εἶδος ἔχων , "having a bad shape". Latte ad loc. regards that entry as generated by Herodotus 6.61.3 (accusative δυσειδέα in the story of King Ariston of Sparta's third wife).
Headword and gloss are often used together by Byzantine writers, especially John Chrysostom (on several occasions), Photius, Simplicius and others.
