Greek Original:
*kai/nuto: e)ni/ka.
The headword is an unaugmented imperfect of kai/numai, third person singular. If it is exactly quoted from somewhere, there are options in the Greek Anthology, but note that a scholion on Homer, Odyssey 3.282 (Phrontis son of Onetor excelling in seamanship: web address 1) has this very same gloss for e)kai/nuto; likewise Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon, and Hesychius epsilon1228.
