Headword: Kerkides. Kerkis
Adler number: kappa,1400
Translated headword: shuttles, shuttle
Vetting Status: high
[A shuttle is] a weaver's implement.

"A well-made shuttle, singing".[2]
Greek Original:
Kerkides. Kerkis: histourgikon ergaleion. kai eidos kuriôs phutou euauxous. kerkida d' eupoiêton, aêdona.
The headword noun is given first in the nominative plural (probably quoted from somewhere) and then in the nominative singular, the latter glossed.
[1] See LSJ s.v. for the extraordinary range of meanings which -- with equal propriety -- this noun can bear. There are several possibilities for the 'plant' alone, e.g. the aspen and the so-called Judas tree.
