Greek Original:

[1] Repeated from kappa 1987. However the headwords have different meanings, so the gloss may have been a generalisation. LSJ defines ko/sumbos, which occurs in the Septuagint, as "fringe" or "hair-net", and kosu/mbh, which occurs in Dio Chrysostom, as "hair knot" (krwbu/lh) or shepherd's coat. Hesychius kappa3780 defines the pair of lemmata (which he spells with two sigmas) as "an apron [e)gko/mbwma], and an Egyptian girdle, and binding something to oneself". The noun e)gko/mbwma is glossed with reference to gloves, like this gloss, in the Etymologicum Gudianum and Etymologicum Magnum --- and they add that "some call this a kosu/mbh".
