[A term for] the grain in Egypt. Meaning Καλύμνιος ["Kalymnian"].[1] [So called] because Philadelphus[2] conveyed the seed out of Kalydon.[3] Apollodorus says that these are called καλύδναι , [sc. accented] like καλύβαι ["huts"].[4]
Greek Original:
Κάλυμνος: ὁ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ σῖτος. ἀντὶ τοῦ Καλύμνιος. ὁ γὰρ Φιλάδελφος ἐκ Καλυδῶνος μετήγαγε τὸ σπέρμα. ὡς ὁ Ἀπολλόδωρός φησι λέγεσθαι καλύδνας, ὡς καλύβας.
See also Etymologicum Gudianum and Etymologicum Magnum s.v. Κάλυμνος .
[1] Though this entry does involve real confusion of toponyms (see n. 3 below) it does not begin here: Kalymnos and Kalydne are alternative names for the Aegean island NW of Kos.
[2] Ptolemy II Philadelphus, ruler of Egypt 282-246.
[3] But read Καλυδνῶν instead of the transmitted Καλυδῶνος (for which latter cf. kappa 266). See also Homer, Iliad 2.677 (web address 1) with scholia, and Strabo 10.5.19.
[4] Apollodorus FGrH 244 F173.
