Greek display:    

Headword: Κευθήμων
Adler number: kappa,1436
Translated headword: of hiding-places
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] of lairs, of places hidden-away.
Greek Original:
Κευθήμων: φωλεῶν, ἀποκρύφων τόπων.
Genitive plural, glossed here as in Photius, Lexicon kappa632 Theodoridis and elsewhere.
The word is not otherwise attested, and the likeliest explanation for it is as a haplography for κευθμών "hiding-place" (kappa 1438) --- which is the next entry in Photius. (The κευθῆνες of kappa 1437 are unlikely to account for the inserted eta, since they do not appear in Photius.)
The glossing given here does not match exactly any attested gloss for κευθμών , though cf. the D scholia on Homer, Iliad 13.28 (παντόθεν ἐκ κευθμῶν: ἐκ τῶν καταδυσέων καὶ φωλεῶν ) and on Homer, Iliad 21.23, glossing μυχούς : "lairs. He means innermost and hidden-away places" (Φωλεούς. λέγει δὲ τοὺς ἐσωτάτω τόπους καὶ ἀποκρύφους ).
