The headword is a masculine noun, here in the accusative case. It is taken to be quoted from Homer, Iliad 22.469: cf. the scholia there. Same or similar glossing in other lexica: see the references at Photius kappa541 Theodoridis, and nn.1-3 below.
[1] kekru/fanton in Photius, but obelized by Theodoridis; either way, Dindorf identified this as a corruption of kroku/fanton, "woven on the woof", with which the headword is glossed in Hesychius (kappa2111 s.v. kekfrufa/lous) and the scholia to Homer, Iliad 22.469 (scholia vetera, D scholia, Meletoniotes' scholia); Meletiniotes already corrupts it into kroku/fa[n]ton. The word is glossed with kekru/falon in reverse, in the Etymologicum Gudianum, the Etymologicum Magnum, and kappa 2458.
[2] Spelled thus also in Hesychius kappa2110 and elsewhere; alternatively with double beta. Either way, rare.
[3] A gloss again at sigma 429.
[4] Greek Anthology 5.260.1 (Paul the Silentiary).
[5] Greek Anthology 6.206.3-4 (Antipater of Sidon). The adjective filo/plektos "tending to be braided" is usually taken to be a corruption of filo/plagktos, "errant, straying". The phrase "dyed with flowers of the grey sea" is normally translated as "dyed with sea-purple", possibly by influence from 6.206. On this epigram, the dedication by five young women of clothing and personal items to Aphrodite, see Gow and Page (vol. I, 13); (vol. II, 38-39); and further excerpts at alpha 4004, beta 310, epsilon 3743, and theta 30. Here Gow and Page, following a suggestion of Hecker, read filopla/gktoio, in the (epic) genitive singular (cf. LSJ s.v. filo/plektos); cf. Gow and Page (vol. I, 13) and (vol. II, 38).
[6] Greek Anthology 6.207.2 (Archias), a paraphrase of 6.206; cf. under rho 319.
