Headword: Κρόκη
Adler number: kappa,2458
Translated headword: weft, woof
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] spun thread.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the adjective] κροκύφαντος ["weft-woven"];[2] because it is woven through a weft. But some say that it [comes] from the hairnet [κεκρύφαλος ], because it conceals [κρύπτει ] the φάλον ; which is a boss of a head.[3]
The accusative [is] τὴν κρόκα .[4]
Greek Original:
Κρόκη: ῥοδάνη. καὶ Κροκύφαντος: ὅτι διὰ κρόκης ὑποφαίνεται. οἱ δὲ ἀπὸ τοῦ κεκρύφαλον αὐτό φασιν, ὅτι κρύπτει τὸ φάλον: ὅ ἐστιν ἐξοχὴ κεφαλῆς. ἡ αἰτιατικὴ τὴν κρόκα.
[1] Same or similar glossing in other lexica (see the references at Photius kappa1108 Theodoridis), and cf. scholia to Aristophanes, Wasps 1144, where the genitive κρόκης occurs (web address 1). See further, n.3.
[2] Uncommonly (outside lexica and scholia), but see the figurative use in Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 2.2.
[3] Also from the Aristophanic scholia.
[4] From iota 482.
