Greek Original:
Ῥινόν: βύρσαν, δέρμα. ῥινοῦ χερμαστῆρος ἐύ̈στροφα κῶλα τιταίνων, Ἀλκιμένης, πτανῶν εἶργον ἄπωθε νέφος. καὶ Ῥινοτόμος, ὁ τὰ δέρματα τέμνων: Ῥινὸς γὰρ τὸ δέρμα.
Notes:
The headword is in the accusative case, extracted from Homer: see next note.
[1] Same glossing in other lexica, and cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 5.308, where the headword occurs (web address 1).
[2] Greek Anthology 7.172.3-4; see already at alpha 3313 and kappa 2231, and again at chi 207.
[3] A very rare word indeed, either a variant of or a mistake for ῥινοτόρος ["leather-piercer"]; see LSJ s.v.
