English translation (etymon)
λύει κνέφας δὲ κεφαλὴ δι’ ὀμμάτων
The head (kephalē) dissolves (luei) the obscurity (knephas) thanks to the eyes
Compositional etymology, assuming a *κ(ν)εφα-λ(υ)-ή with dropping of the [n]. The compound is of the usual type Object-Verb. The etymology would be appropriate for "eye", because the eye was considered the source of light in Antiquity, but is not for "head". This is why Mauropus adds δι᾽ὀμμάτων.
