II. leather thong, whip, D.21.180, Plu.Pomp.18, etc.; σκύτη βλέπειν to look like a whipped cur, Eup.282, Ar.V. 643; “ς. τέμνειν εἰς νουθεσίαν ἀνθρώπων ἀφρόνωνSocr.Ep.12. (Cf. Skt. skunomi 'cover', Lat. ob-scū-rus.) [σκύτος with υ^ occurs in codd.; but in Ar.Pl.514 Bentl. restored σκυ^λοδεψεῖν; so in Theoc. 25.142 σκύλος is the better reading, and in Lyc.1316 Scheer conjectures σκύλος.]
