Greek Original:
Γλεῦκος: τὸ ἀποστάλαγμα τῆς σταφυλῆς πρὶν πατηθῇ. καὶ ἡ τραγῳδία φησὶ περὶ Αἴαντος: ἐμοὶ πικρὸς τέθνηκεν ἢ κείνοις γλυκύς.

[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica. For apostalagma cf. under omicron 470.
[2] Sophocles, Ajax 966 (web address 1 below). It does, as the translation indicates, include the adjective γλυκύς ("sweet"), not the headword noun γλεῦκος , cognate but rarer.
