Greek Original:
Κριός: ὁ τὸ κάρα ἱέμενος. ὡς ὁ κρύπτων ἤλαυν' ὀπίσω. καὶ ἐν ταῖς οἰνικαῖς ἀποστάσεσι κριὸς καλεῖται τὸ κεράμιον τὸ πρῶτον, ᾧ τὰ λοιπὰ ἐπιτηρεῖται.
Notes:
For this headword see also kappa 2434, kappa 2436, kappa 2437, kappa 2438. The present entry closely resembles one in Etymologicum Gudianum 347; see further in notes 1 and 2 below.
[1] An attempt to etymologize the headword κρίος , as from κάρα (head) and ἱέμενος (rushing). The Et.Gud. has κέρατι in place of κάρα .
[2] Perhaps a quotation (unidentifiable), or perhaps an alternative etymology, as from κρύπτων (hiding) and ὀπίσω (backwards). The elision ἤλαυν' ὀπίσω suggests the former (though the result is not demonstrably metrical), yet the Et.Gud. reads ἤλαυνεν in place of the elided ἤλαυν' .
[3] This sense of the headword, attested only here, is not registered in LSJ s.v.
