The headword phrase is evidently quoted from somewhere.
As transmitted, the adjective in it, νωταία "of the back" (feminine nominative singular), is a rare form of the usual νωτιαία ; otherwise attested (but accented νωταῖα ) in Nicander, Theriaca 317, and the scholia thereto. (Adler notes that the Suda editio princeps emended to νωτιαία here.)
