Greek display:    

Headword: *ka=lon
Adler number: kappa,247
Translated headword: spar, wood
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a timber.[1]
But the [form] ka/lw [is] Attic.[2]
Greek Original:
*ka=lon: to\ cu/lon. to\n *ka/lw de\ *)attikw=s.
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 ka/lws ('rope', 'reef'), and may have been copied from or intended for another entry (cf. kappa 255, kappa 259) Gaisford suggested emending the incongruous to\n ka/lw of the manuscripts to to\n ka/lwn producing a normal accusative for ka/lws, but a more likely emendation is to tou= ka/lw, producing the Attic genitive of ka/lws, 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.
