Greek Original:
Ἰξύν: τὴν ὀσφύν. ἐπ' ἠϊόνι ψυχόμενον χηλάς τε καὶ ἰξύας. τουτέστι τὴν ῥάχιν. καὶ αὖθις: ἔκρεκες εὐτάρσοις δι' ἰξύος, ἀχέτα, μολπάν, τέττιξ, οἰονόμοις τερπνότερον χέλυος.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, and cf. also the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 5.231, where ἰξυῖ occurs. The present headword, accusative case, must be quoted from somewhere else (perhaps Theocritus, Idylls 25.246).
