Headword: *)akro/drua
Adler number: alpha,1001
Translated headword: fruits
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] tree-borne crops,[1] all crops which grow on trees.[2]
"They threw [things] at them, one a Persian cloak, another fruits".[3]
Greek Original:
*)akro/drua: karpoi\ dendrikoi\, pa/ntes oi( tw=n de/ndrwn karpoi/. e)pe/rripton de\ au)toi=s [o(] me\n ka/ndun, o( de\ a)kro/drua.
The headword, neuter plural, is perhaps extracted from the quotation given (though Latte on Hesychius s.v. asserts the source to be the Septuagint: Song of Solomon 7.14). The noun itself, which can mean fruits in general as here, more exactly implies ones grown high up.
[1] (sc. As opposed to the ground.) Glossing thus far as in Photius and elsewhere.
[2] As in the scholia to Plato, Critias 115B.
[3] Iamblichus, Babyloniaca fr. 19 (ed. Habrich); more fully at sigma 673.
