[Hence,] ‡ The chief, or lord, of a people, or company of men; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) their leader: (Ḳ:) or their strenuous defender, or protector, and the one of them to whom others look. (TA.) You say, هُوَ كَبْشُ الكَتِيبَةِ (A, TA)He is the leader of the army, or troop: (TA:) and هُمْ كِبَاشُ الكَتَائِبِ[They are the leaders of the armies, or troops]. (A, TA.)

Whence the sayings,] بَنُو فُلَانٍ كَبْشَةُ رُذَلَآءَ[The sons of such a one are a gang of vile persons]: and كَبْشَةُ دُنَسَآءَ[a gang of dirty, or filthy, persons]: thus they use this word to intimate dispraise: but [SM adds,] I know not how this is. (TA.) [Perhaps SM means that he doubts whether the word thus used be classical or not: for as to its signification, it is well known.]
