Almost identical (slightly longer) entry in ps.-Zonaras. The headword is perfect middle/passive participle, feminine accusative singular, of a verb e)kxilo/w ('cover all over with grass': LSJ). Very similar glosses, but in the nominative, occur in previous lexica: Pausanias the Atticist epsilon23 Erbse; Hesychius epsilon1438 Latte). See further, next note. The word is unattested outside lexicography.
cf. chi 303.
[1] Hesychius has e)yugme/nhn ("cooled", "desiccated") in place of the e)yeusme/nhn ("falsified") which occurs both here and in Eustathius On the Iliad 773 (vol. 2 p. 795 van der Valk). On the basis of that Erbse restores the former reading to Pausanias the Atticist (whom Eustathius cites), who would be our earliest source for the entry.
