Greek Original:
Ὄφεις παρείας: τοὺς ἐπηρμένας ἔχοντας τὰς παρειάς. δοκοῦσι δὲ ἤπιοι εἶναι καὶ μὴ ἀδικεῖν ἀνθρώπους: ἐσθίειν δὲ τοὺς ἔχεις καὶ εἶναι τῶν μυστηρίων ἱεροί. καὶ Ὀφείδιον, ὑποκοριστικῶς. λύσις ὀνείρου: ὄφεις πατεῖν τὰ κέντρα τῶν ἐχθρῶν λύει.
Notes:
[1] Likewise in Photius, Lexicon omicron706 Theodoridis; similarly in other lexica and in a scholion on Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 690, where the headword phrase (in the accusative plural) occurs (web address 1); cf. pi 585.
[2] Copied from here to omicron 998, where this form would belong in alphabetical order.
[3] From the dream-interpretations, in verse, attributed to Astrampsychus (alpha 4251). Not in manuscripts AF; in the margin of M, and after omicron 1007 in V.
