Greek Original:
Though grammatically opaque, this unglossed headword Ψυταλίων must surely be connected with the small island of Psyt(t)aleia which lies between Attica and Salamis, and was immortalised in the events of 480 BCE: see Herodotus 8.76 & 95; Plutarch, Aristides 9; Pausanias 1.36.2. (In Stephanus of Byzantium the Psyttaleia entry likewise comes immediately after the one for Psyra, here psi 155.)
