[Meaning] this fellow.

But οὕτως ["thus, so"] [is used] adverbially, and οὑτωσί [is used] instead of οὕτως .[2]
"So foolishly so will I throw away." Meaning at random, for the sake of nothing.

Οὑτοσί: οὗτος ὁ ἄνθρωπος. ἀντὶ ὀνόματος κέχρηται τῷ οὑτοσί, τὸ δὲ ι ἐπέκτασις. Οὕτως δὲ ἐπιρρηματικῶς, καὶ Οὑτωσί, ἀντὶ τοῦ οὕτως. οὕτως ἀνοήτως οὕτως ἐκβαλῶ. ἀντὶ τοῦ ὡς ἔτυχεν, ἐκ τοῦ μηδενός.
