Greek Original:
Ἰλυσπῶντες: συνειλούμενοι. εἰς τέλμα βοῦν ἐμπεσόντα καὶ ἰλυσπώμενον ἕως τεθνάναι.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword as transmitted appears to be the present active participle, masculine nominative plural, of ἰλυσπάω , a verb usually (as in the quotation below) used in the middle voice. Theodoridis on Photius s.v. obelizes ἰλυσπῶντες and notes variants elsewhere (e.g. ἰλισπῶντες in Hesychius iota567), without firmly choosing one.
[2] cf. Aelian, History of Animals 8.14.
