Headword: *)ako/rhtos
Adler number: alpha,930
Translated headword: bug-less, unswept
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning one who/which is] unadorned, disorderly; for korei=n ["to sweep"] [means] to adorn. This man is unswept, as if full and not swept out, growing and multiplying and abounding. All [sc. the words used here] derive from contingency.[1] For those who have olive-pressings and sheep necessarily have a great deal of everything.[2]

From the scholia to Aristophanes, Clouds 44, where the headword occurs, in Strepsiades' self-portrait (web address 1 below). The etymology pursued here, however, is false; the connection is rather with ko/ris.
[1] Or, from accidental attributes. The first of several Suda appearances of the phrase a)po\ (or e)k) sumbebhko/tos. See generally LSJ s.v. sumbai/nw, IV.
[2] Sheep and olive-pressings are mentioned in the next verse (Clouds 45).
