[A term for] a cockerel's head.
Greek Original:
*kurbasi/an: kefalh\n a)le/ktoros.
Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The headword, a feminine noun, is here in the accusative case and thus taken to be extracted from Aristophanes, Birds 487, where the appearance of a cockerel is in question (see web address 1).
For the Persian cap see the next entry, kappa 2742; also kappa 2744 and pi 1602.
