Greek Original:
Ἔκνισεν: ἐκίνησε, καθήψατο. Ἀππιανός: Σύφακα δ' ἄρα τὸν δυνάστην ἔρως ἔκνιζε τῆς παιδός. οἱ δὲ Καρχηδόνιοι ἔδωκαν αὐτήν.
[1] The headword, which has the same glossing in some other lexica (references at Photius epsilon454 Theodoridis), is third person singular, aorist indicative active, of κνίζω (LSJ entry at web address 1). It must be extracted from somewhere (other than the quotation given, which has the corresponding imperfect); Theodoridis suggests Pindar, Pythian Odes 11.23, but the possibilities also include Aristophanes, Wasps 1286. For the verb see already epsilon 514 and again kappa 1874 and kappa 1875.
[2] Appian, Iberica 150; again under sigma 1693.
