The headword, aorist participle of a)kosta/w, is used of a horse in Homer, Iliad 6.506 (= 15.263). This entry, with parallels in other lexica, draws on the scholia there.
cf. alpha 935.
[1] More intelligibly in Etymologicum Magnum 51.14, where these two terms are simply equivalents.
[2] i.e. through the loss of one syllable, a)kosth/sas (the headword) becoming a)kolasth/sas; but the latter, meaning (if it means anything) 'being licentious', is otherwise unattested.
[3] The text does not read a)kosta\n sei=o koru/nan, but to\ na/kos, ta\n sei=o koru/nan, "this skin [and] this staff of yours".
