Headword: Κᾶλον
Adler number: kappa,247
Translated headword: spar, wood
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a timber.[1]
But the [form] κάλω [is] Attic.[2]
Greek Original:
Κᾶλον: τὸ ξύλον. τὸν Κάλω δὲ Ἀττικῶς.
For the headword see also kappa 186, kappa 201, kappa 211.
[1] Likewise, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (352).
[2] This statement appears not to pertain to the headword but to the word κάλως ('rope', 'reef'), and may have been copied from or intended for another entry (cf. kappa 255, kappa 259) Gaisford suggested emending the incongruous τὸν κάλω of the manuscripts to τὸν κάλων producing a normal accusative for κάλως , but a more likely emendation is to τοῦ κάλω , producing the Attic genitive of κάλως , an idiosyncratic form frequently commented on by the grammarians (e.g. [Herodian] 3.2.713; cf. again kappa 255). The translation here reflects this possibility. The ultimate source may be commentary on Aristophanes; see kappa 259 for more details.
