[Meaning] properly the final [word] in some chapter of poetry.[1]

In Thucydides, [it means] the top [akron] of the end [telos] of the verse. "Top" is also the name for the beginning of the verse.[2]

[1] More fully in Photius, Lexicon alpha869 Theodoridis (s.v. a)kroteleu/tion e)/pous), where 'Phrynichus' is cited. This has generated a supposed fragment of comic poetry (Phrynichus fr. 86 Kock), but wrongly so: it is Phrynichus Arabius, Praeparatio sophistica fr. 14.
[2] From the scholia to Thucydides 2.17.1, where the adjective 'fag-end' (with 'word' or the like implicit) is used.
