[οἰνόβρωτος means the same as] ὀρνεόβρωτος .
Greek Original:
Οἰνόβρωτος: ὀρνεόβρωτος.
The headword printed by Adler is indeed οἰνόβρωτος , given by four manuscripts of the Suda but otherwise unattested in Greek literature. One manuscript (A) does however give the correct reading, οἰωνόβρωτος , attested twice in the Septuagint (2 Maccabees 9:15; 3 Maccabees 6:34) and elsewhere (e.g. Strabo 15.3.20; Philodemus, On Death 33). See Photius, Lexicon omicron170 Theodoridis, with other references there.
