Greek Original:
Dasplêta: tên epi kakôi prospelazousan. en Epigrammasi: sên gar egô dasplêta diastasin hoia te pikrên nukta kataptêssô tên Acherontiada. Dasplêtis gar hê Erinnus.
Notes:
The headword is accusative singular of the epic/poetic feminine adjective dasplh=tis.
[1] Similar glossing in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 15.234, where the nominative case occurs (of the Fury: see the end of the entry). The Suda's accusative is probably not extracted from the epigram about to be quoted but, rather, from Simonides fr. 17 PMG (on Charybdis, chi 144).
[2] Greek Anthology 5.241.3-4.
