Vetting Status: high

Greek Original:
Παίδουσα ἢ Παιδοῦσσα: ἐγκύμων.
The primary headword, transmitted as παίδουσα , is attested only here; however, the gloss (see n. 1 below) shows it to be a mistaken accentuation of παιδοῦσα . This latter feminine adjective occurs in, for example, Hippocrates, De natura muliebri 99.1-3, and means pregnant; see LSJ s.v. παιδοῦς .
The second (alternative) headword παιδοῦσσα , in certain Suda manuscripts only, also occurs only here. It is the feminine form of the adjective παιδοῦς, -οῦσσα, -οῦν , which is contracted from παιδόεις, -όεσσα, -όεν (rich in children); see LSJ s.v.
[1] παιδοῦσα has the same glossing in the Synagoge, Lexica Segueriana 325.17, and Photius, Lexicon pi33 Theodoridis; cf. the scholia to Sophocles, Trachiniae 308.
