For this headword see also kappa 2434, kappa 2436, kappa 2437, kappa 2438. The present entry closely resembles one in Etymologicum Gudianum 347; see further in notes 1 and 2 below.
[1] An attempt to etymologize the headword kri/os, as from ka/ra (head) and i(e/menos (rushing). The Et.Gud. has ke/rati in place of ka/ra.
[2] Perhaps a quotation (unidentifiable), or perhaps an alternative etymology, as from kru/ptwn (hiding) and o)pi/sw (backwards). The elision h)/laun' o)pi/sw suggests the former (though the result is not demonstrably metrical), yet the Et.Gud. reads h)/launen in place of the elided h)/laun'.
[3] This sense of the headword, attested only here, is not registered in LSJ s.v.
