Θῆσσαν: μισθωτικήν, ἢ εὐτελῆ, ἢ δουλικὴν τροφήν.
Accusative case feminine of the headword (see again under theta 365), with the same or similar glossing in other lexica. Latte reconstructs the original entry in Hesychius (theta548) as θῆσσαν τράπεζαν "menial table" (from Euripides, Alcestis 2) glossed with δουλικὴν τροφήν "servile fare."
For other x-refs see under theta 358.
