Ἐν χρῷ κεκαρμένος: πρὸς αὐτῷ τῷ χρωτί, οἷον σύνεγγυς καὶ πλησίον τοῦ δέρματος τὰς τρίχας ἐξυρημένος. καὶ αὖθις: ἦν δὲ ἄρα αὐτῷ ἐν χρῷ φίλος. ὁ χρώς, τοῦ χρῶ, Ἀττικῶς, ὡς γέλως, γέλω. οἱ δὲ ἀπὸ τοῦ χρώς, χρωτί, ἀποκοπῇ τῆς τι συλλαβῆς.

[1] This phrase (with the participle in the masculine nominative singular) has the same or similar glossing in other lexica. It is presumably quoted from somewhere in this form -- perhaps Lucian, Dialogues of the Courtesans 12.5 -- though Theodoridis on Photius, Lexicon epsilon1069 draws attention to the accusative plural version in Xenophon, Hellenica 1.7.8.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable.
[3] cf. epsilon 1508.
