Κατηρεφέα: κατεστεγασμένα. μέλλουσι γὰρ ἐνταῦθά σε πέμψειν, ἔνθα μήποθ' ἡλίου φέγγος προσόψει, ζῶσα δ' ἐν κατηρεφεῖ στέγῃ χθονὸς τῆσδ' ὑμνήσεις κακά.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica and various scholia (inc. on Homer, Iliad 18.589: web address 1); see the references at Photius kappa471 Theodoridis. The headword is neuter nominative/accusative plural of the adjective κατηρεφής . It must be quoted from somewhere (other than the quotation which follows, where the adjective is in the dative singular).
