Notes:
Likewise or similarly in other lexica (see the references at Photius lambda299 Theodoridis), including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, and cf. also the D scholia to Homer, Odyssey 22.278, where this adverb occurs (web address 1).
Eustathius (1926.37) posits a verb λίζω from the root of which λίγδην would be derived, but this verb is not otherwise attested. See Chantraine s.v. λίγδην .
cf. epsilon 2446.
