[νίζε means the same as] νίπτε .
Greek Original:
Νίζε: νίπτε.
cf. Etymologicum Magnum 605.42 on Homer, Iliad 11.830, where the headword occurs as an unaugmented third person singular imperfect (web address 1) of this verb descriptive of the washing of hands and/or feet. (See also 11.846.) The Suda here, though, seems to gloss it as an imperative.
From νίζω , root *nigw-: cf. nu 372, nu 419.
