[sc. An epithet of] Demeter, since she is responsible for drawing breath [ἀναπνεῖν ].
Greek Original:
Ὄμπνιος: ἡ Δημήτηρ, αἰτία οὖσα τοῦ ἀναπνεῖν.
cf. generally (but without explicit mention of Demeter) Hesychius omicron828. (Wentzel attributed this entry to Atticists.) The adjective is derived from ὄμπνη "cereal, nourishment," and is not related to the verb ἀναπνέω . See generally LSJ s.v., esp. sense I.2 for the epithet of Demeter, attested in Callimachus (and Nonnus).
