Greek Original:
Κρόσσας: κλιμακίδας. ἐν μὲν τοῖς ὑπομνήμασιν ἀποδίδωσι τὰς τῶν ἐπάλξεων στεφάνας, οἱονεὶ κεφαλίδας, ἐν δὲ τοῖς περὶ ναυστάθμου κλίμακας.
Notes:
[1] The headword is accusative case of the noun (always found in the plural: see LSJ s.v.) κρόσσαι . From Homer: see next note. Same or similar entry in other lexica; see the references at Photius kappa1110 Theodoridis, and next note.
[2] Ultimately from commentary -- in which 'he' is probably Aristonicus -- on Homer, Iliad 12.258 (web address 1); cf. scholia ad loc., and cf. scholia to Homer, Iliad 14.35. Compare also Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon (104.14); Hesychius kappa4199; Etymologicum Magnum 540.40.
