Greek Original:
Κάλυντρα: κόσμητρα. ἀντὶ δὲ τοῦ δόρατος κάλυντρον φέρων καὶ κόσκινον ἀντὶ τῆς ἀσπίδος καὶ κόφινον ἀντὶ κράνους, ἐπὶ ὄνου καθήμενος.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; see the references at Photius kappa133 Theodoridis. The headword, a neuter nominative/accusative plural, must be quoted from somewhere. Same spelling at kappa 2513 and kappa 2515, but cf. the entry for κάλλυνθρον (sic) in LSJ.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable. (Adler suggested Aelian.)
