The headword is present middle/passive participle, feminine nominative singular, of bri/qw. It might be generated by the quotation given, where it is in the corresponding genitive, but more probably it is extracted from somewhere in its own right; and the likeliest possibility is Homer, Iliad 8.307 (where it occurs in a simile comparing the head of the dying Gorgythion to that of a poppy); cf. the scholia there.
