Same entry in Hesychius (delta2605) and elsewhere, including Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon. The headword phrase is probably quoted from Plato, Laws 770A (even though 'life' has the definite article there); other instances and parallels in LSJ s.v. δυσμή , I, and add e.g. Procopius, History of the Wars of Justinian 8.12.34.
