Headword: *)/egkuklon
Adler number: epsilon,135
Translated headword: shawl, wrap
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] cloak.[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "I would [sc. help to stop the war], even if I had to pawn this shawl." [2] And elsewhere: "bring a shawl! -- Take this one from the couch."[3] And [it is] clear that the e)/gkuklon is a cloak, but the krokwto/s ["saffron-dyed"] a garment.[4]
Greek Original:

The headword -- neuter nominative/accusative singular of the adjective e)/gkuklos, used as a substantive -- applies specifically to a woman's upper garment (LSJ).
See also kappa 1809, kappa 2460.
[1] Same glossing in Pausanias the Atticist epsilon7; and cf. Photius, Lexicon epsilon63.
[2] An approximation of Aristophanes, Lysistrata 113-4 (web address 1), with scholion.
[4] Aristophanes, Thesmophoriasuzae 261 (web address 2: the first speaker is Euripides, the second Agathon), with scholion.
[4] Repeated at kappa 2461. The distinction being drawn is not self-evident as it stands, but perhaps there is enlightenment in the scholia to Ecclesiazusae 322: 'the krokotos is a Dionysiac garment'.
