Translated headword: crop
Vetting Status: high
In reference to flying birds, the sinewy cavity above the stomach is called a prolobos -- like a skin, into which the undigested food [sc. goes and] remains.[1] It also exists in all cocks, and by some it is called a bellows.

The headword prolobos is a masculine noun in the nominative singular; see generally LSJ s.v.
In her critical apparatus Adler reports that ms F replaced the headword by pro/bolos, projection; see further, next note.
[1] cf. Aristotle, History of Animals 508b26. Suda mss AFV give 'is called a pro/bolos', projection (so Adler), which is an anagram of the present headword, but apparently otherwise unrelated; see pi 2351 and the note there.
