Headword: *qrw/skei
Adler number: theta,511
Translated headword: leaps
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] springs.[1]

Greek Original:
*qrw/skei: phda=|. kai\ *qrwsmo/s, u(yhlo\s to/pos bounoeidh/s, a)f' ou(= e)pikatabai/nonta qorei=n, o(/ e)sti qea/sasqai: h)\ phdh=sai.
[1] Similar glossing in other lexica, with significant variations. The headword -- third person singular, present indicative active, of this verb -- seems to be quoted from Oppian, Halieutica; the present gloss is used in the scholia on its appearance there in 2.83, 2.585, and 3.569.
[2] From the scholia to Homer, Iliad 20.3, where this term occurs in the dative; and cf. theta 408.
In Apollonius the Sophist, Homeric Lexicon, the gloss is bounoeidh\s to/pos, a)f' ou(= a)pobai/nonta qorei=n "a hill-like place, from which to run going away." Hesychius theta815 (Latte) has a)f) ou(= katabai/nonta qorei=n e)/sti "from which it is possible to run going down." Photius, followed by the Suda, makes the participle e)pikatabai/nonta qorei=n "to run going down onto," and adds o(/ e)sti qea/sasqai "that is, to behold" (this phrase is obelized by Theodoridis). This wouldn't make sense as a gloss for qorei=n "to run"; but the Synagoge has qewrei=n "to see," which is reasonably glossed with o(/ e)sti qea/sasqai. So the Suda seems to represent a confused tradition.
