The well-attested headword phrase, already at kappa 823 (and cf. under epsilon 1219), is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
Its principal element, kartero/n, is neuter accusative (and nominative and vocative) singular (as well as masculine accusative singular) of kartero/s, -a/, -o/n (mighty); cf. kappa 428, kappa 429, and see LSJ s.v.
[1] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler notes Bernhardy's view that it could be attributed to Eunapius.)
