[1] This seems the most appropriate way to translate the phrase transmitted here, qwrakiko\n o(/plon, but note that Hesychius pi1365 s.v. pe/lths has *Qra|/kiko\n o(/plon, "Thracian armour".
[2] For the application of the headword -- or more exactly its variant pelte (pi 955) -- to salt-fish cf. Hesychius loc.cit. and especially Diphilos of Siphnos as cited by Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 3.121B (3.93 Kaibel): "the river crow-fish (korakinos), the one from the Nile, which some call a pelte".
[3] From the scholia to Aristophanes, Lysistrata 563, where this word occurs in the accusative case.
