This headword (cf. e.g. Pollux 9.110) appears by mistake at beta 160, q.v. See rather kappa 2777 (end), where it is used of the game played by the young Cyrus -- later to be Cyrus the Great, King of Persia -- in Herodotus 1.114-115 (web address 1: Herodotus simply calls it "king"). See also chi 619.
