Headword: Ἐντετευτλανωμένης
Adler number: epsilon,1463
Translated headword: beetified

[Meaning] cooked with beets; for they used to eat eels with beets. For they are said to be very sweet when cooked together with beets. Aristophanes [writes]: "for may I never be separated from your beetified self - not even in death!"[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐντετευτλανωμένης: μετὰ τεύτλων ἑψηθείσης: μετὰ γὰρ τεύτλων ἤσθιον τὰς ἐγχέλυς. λέγονται γὰρ τεύτλοις συνεψόμεναι ἥδισται εἶναι. Ἀριστοφάνης: μηδὲ γὰρ θανών ποτε σοῦ χωρισθείην ἐντετευτλανωμένης.
The headword (if correctly transmitted: see below) is perfect passive participle of ἐντευτλανόομαι ; here feminine genitive singular, presupposing the eel which the hungry speaker is addressing.
[1] Aristophanes, Acharnians 893-4 (web address 1), itself a parody of Euripides, Alcestis 367-8 (web address 2). The preceding comments are drawn verbatim from the scholia to the Aristophanes passage. Some editions of Aristophanes print a conjecture of F.H.M. Blaydes (1818-1908), ἐντετευτλιωμένης , in place of the headword in its present form, but the paradosis reading is defended by Olson, among others. In place of 'be separated' (χωρισθείην ), the mss of Aristophanes read 'be separate' (χωρὶς εἴην ).
