Ἀγαύη or Ἀγαυή?

DGE has Ἀγαυή, Wikipedia Ἀγαύη.

ἐπεὶ δὲ μόχθων τέρματ᾽ οὐκ ἐξήνυτον, ἔλεξ᾽ Ἀγαυή → When they did not succeed in their toils, Agave said: (Euripides, Bacchae 1105)

Ἀγαύη is attested only in late sources, starting with Plutarch.  Euripides and all the classical authors have Ἀγαυή.  Apparently Ἀγαύη is not even mentioned in LSJ.  The adjective ἀγαυός, "noble," is always oxytone.
