[Meaning] of one having curving talons.[1]

Greek Original:
Γαμψώνυχος: ἐπικαμπεῖς ἔχοντος τοὺς ὄνυχας. καὶ Γαμψώνυχα ζῷα, ὅσα τῶν πτερωτῶν τὴν ἐπιρυγχίδα γεγάμψωκεν ὑπὸ τὴν γένυν, οἷός ἐστιν ἀετὸς, ἱέραξ, κεγχρηὶ̈ς ἄλλα τε τὰ μὴ πίνοντα.
cf. generally gamma 52, gamma 54, gamma 55.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; the headword, genitive case, is evidently quoted from somewhere. For the glossing cf. also the scholia to Homer, Iliad 16.428, where the nominative plural of the headword occurs (describing vultures).
[2] Again at epsilon 2556; see also kappa 1223, rho 282.
