See also kappa 2119. The term is routinely used by Galen, Paul of Aegina, and other late medical authors. Pollux 2.78 notes it is Attic, and the term is glossed in Timaeus, Platonic Lexicon s.v. koruza=n. Hesychius glosses it, but also uses it as a gloss s.v. mu/ca, te/gea, te/nea, and the scholia on Plato, Republic 343A actually claim it is kata/rrous in Attic.
