For this headword in another sense see kappa 1854. The present entry is the same in Photius (kappa812 Theodoridis); also Timaeus, Platonic Lexicon s.v. for its first part. The present headword is not extant in Plato, but see e.g. Herodotus 1.92.4 on Croesus' treatment of Pantaleon (web address 1); cf. Plutarch, On the Malice of Herodotus 858F.
