cf. pi 1599, pi 1602.
The glossing noun here, κέντουκλον , is (according to Trapp) a transliteration of Latin centunclum "saddle-cloth." It can also refer to any clothing or covering made from coarse wool or felt. See Nick Nicholas' note on An Entertaining Tale of Quadrupeds v. 511.
The entry is also in ps.-Herodian, the Ambrosian Lexicon (according to Adler), and ps.-Zonaras.
