The headword is apparently presented in two variant forms, ki/sth and ki/stis (though see next note). For the former cf. kappa 1678; for the latter, kappa 1680. See also kappa 1578.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica, including Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon: see the references at Photius kappa747 Theodoridis, where however the editor prints the second headword as koitis (from the Synagoge; cf. kappa 2570).
[2] The spelling ki/sqh is not elsewhere attested.
[3] Quotation unidentifiable.
