[i.e.] kountouros. Drones, too, are called kouthouroi, from concealing [keuthein] their own rear [oura]. Or because [they are] stingless.

The headword and the gloss -- the latter being a variant of the former -- are masculine accusative singulars. The headword is evidently quoted from somewhere, but is otherwise unattested, either in this spelling (kouthouros) or as kothouros.
cf. Etymologicum Magnum 524.41, and the scholia to Plato, Laws 901A.
See also kappa 1910 (and kappa 1561); and kappa 1435 for keuthein.
