Adler number: kappa,370
Translated headword: heart-extracting

The headword (quoted again at the end of the entry) is the aorist middle participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb kardio/w. Presumably quoted from somewhere, though NB other lexica quote it in the nominative plural.
cf. kappa 368.
[1] This term, before the modern, applied sense of it took over, meant having the sacrifice(s) entirely consumed by fire; cf. under epsilon 1094, pi 1544.
