A proper name.[1] [There is] also a color "kala/i+non."[2] Aeschylus [writes]: "in various [...] colors."[3]
Greek Original:
*ka/lai+s: o)/noma ku/rion. kai\ *kala/i+non xrw=ma. *ai)sxu/los: e)n poiki/lois xrw/masin.
cf. Etymologicum Magnum 486.50; Hesychius s.v. ka/lai+s (kappa94).
[1] One of the sons of Boreas (see under beta 390). cf. Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 1.211ff.
[2] Blue-green.
[3] Purportedly an abbreviated phrase from Aeschylus, Agamemnon 923, but the text there has the noun ka/llesin, not the Suda's xrw/masin. Compare kappa 207, where ke/ramos kala/i+nos is given as a gloss for ka/llh.
