[1] The phrase trapezei/ths ku/wn is not attested, in this case (nominative) or any other, outside lexicography and scholia. (For something similar see tau 885.) It may ultimately derive from attempts to explain the Homeric phrase quoted below (cf. Eustathius, Commentary on the Iliad 4.573).
[2] cf. alpha 3878, kappa 1934, kappa 1971. For the distinction between the two spellings of the words trapezei/ths and trapezi/ths, see ps.-Herodian, De prosodia catholica 3.1.77, De orthographia 3.2.436, 3.2.593, Theognostus, Canones 247, Etymologicum Gudianum 534.16-19, etc.
[3] This phrase, incorporating an epic dialect nominative plural form of the related noun/adjective trapezeu/s, occurs twice in Homer (Iliad 23.173, Odyssey 17.309).
