χαλκόκροτος - χαλκοκρότος

Is χαλκοκρότος valid or it should be χαλκόκροτος in both senses? And then the reference to non-existent καλκόκροτος.

A sounding or rattling with bronze, epith. of Demeter, in allusion to instruments used in her worship, Pi.I.7(6).3; χ. ἵπποι horses that stamp with hoofs of bronze, brazen-hoofed, Ar.Eq.552 (lyr.).
II = χαλκήλατος, φάσγανον E.Ph.1577 (lyr.); χαλκόκροτα bronze utensils, POxy.1657.1 (iii A. D.).
III χαλκοκρότος, ὁ, = Lat. aerarius, Gloss. (καλκόκροτος cod.).

This must be from Herr Heraeus' Index Graecolatinus to the Glossarium, notorious for misplaced accents. I don't trust him. All the MSS have χαλκόκροτος.
