Longer entry along the same lines in ps.-Zonaras; cf. already kappa 1147. The headword is an epic perfect participle (masculine accusative singular), used by Homer only in the phrase kekafho/ta qumo/n, "having breathed out his spirit." (Later poetry uses the form in more varied contexts.) Compare a scholion on Iliad 5.698, where it occurs, and see also Odyssey 5.468.
