[Meaning] burned-up coals. Homer [writes]: "scattering the charcoals he set the spits on top."[1]
And in the Epigrams: "a mullet from the charcoals and a wrasse, Artemis of the harbour, I give to you."[2]
Also [sc. attested are] anthrakides ["charcoalies"], little grilled fish; and everything that has been grilled on charcoal is thus called.
Also [sc. attested is] anthrakion, a short tripod in Alexis.[3]
Greek Original:
Anthrakia: pepuraktômenoi anthrakes. Homêros: anthrakiên storesas obelous ephuperthe tanusse. kai en Epigrammasi: triglan ap' anthrakiês kai phukida soi limenêtin, Artemi, dôreumai. kai Anthrakides, leptoi ichthues optoi: kai panta ta ep' anthrakôn optômena houtô legontai. kai Anthrakion, brachu tripodiskion para Alexidi.
The headword is a feminine nominative singular (sic), glossed with a nominative plural. It might be generated by the first quotation given, which includes its epic accusative singular form; alternatively it is quoted here in its own right.
[1] Homer, Iliad 9.213 (web address 1).
[2] Greek Anthology 6.105.1-2 (Apollonides); again at lambda 544, tau 962, phi 819. Contrary to all four passages, "of the harbour" does go with Artemis, as translated here, not the wrasse. The adjective is also spelled with iota, limeni=tis. On this epigram, a fisherman's offerings to Artemis, see Gow and Page vol. I (126-127), vol. II (148-149), and further excerpts at alpha 4456 and zeta 164.
[3] Alexis fr. 134 Kock, now 139 K.-A.; cf. tau 1002.
