[Meaning] not-death-showing,[1] as if [to say] unharmed; for kh/r [is] death.[2]
"Out of poverty (as you know) sheer, but just, Cyprian,[3] receive these gifts." In the Epigrams.[4]
Greek Original:
*)akraifnou=s: a)khrofanou=s, oi(onei\ a)blabou=s: kh\r ga\r o( qa/natos. e)k peni/hs [w(s oi)=sqa] a)kraifne/os, a)lla\ dikai/hs, *ku/pri tau=ta de/xeu dw=ra. e)n *)epigra/mmasin.
The headword is genitive singular of the adjective a)kraifnh/s, extracted from Thucydides: see n. 2 below. (It also appears in the quotation given, in the uncontracted form a)kraifne/os. LSJ entry at web address 1.
[1] Here and in other lexica (references at Photius alpha833 Theodoridis, second part) an otherwise-unattested a)khrofanou=s is given as the etymon of a)kraifnou=s, surely incorrectly. See further, next note.
[2] If we strip out a)khrofanou=s and its etymological addendum, this gloss is the same as the one in the scholia to Thucydides 1.19.1, from where the headword has evidently been extracted.
[3] Aphrodite, born in the sea-foam off Cyprus; cf. kappa 2738.
[4] Greek Anthology 6.191.1-2.
