[Meaning] with the seed of a pomegranate.
Greek Original:
*sidi/w|: ko/kkw| r(o/as.
Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius sigma197 Theodoridis. The headword (a neuter noun in the dative singular) must be quoted from somewhere; most extant instances are in medical writers.
Despite this glossing, LSJ translate the headword as pomegranate-peel, a sense which does seem to be required by the instance of the plural in Aristophanes, Clouds 881: the infant Pheidippides used to make toy frogs out of them. See also sigma 381.
