Greek Original:
Θυώνη: ἡ Σεμέλη. παρὰ τὸ θύειν, ὅ ἐστιν ὁρμᾶν.
cf. scholia on Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 1.636, and on Pindar, Pythian 3.177a; also Hesychius theta84, and (e.g.) Diodorus Siculus 3.62.9, 4.25.4.

[2] Similar glosses in other lexica (and cf. theta 586). LSJ distinguishes between θύω (A), "sacrifice", and θύω (B), "seethe". Confusingly, lower-case θυώνη is defined as a "portion of sacrifice" (i.e. from θύω (A)), after the proper name has been stated to derive from θύω (B).
