The first part of this entry is also in Photius, but the headword there is nominative a)ndraka/s. Hesychius also has an entry with that headword, generated by its occurrence in Homer, Odyssey 13.14; see further below.
[1] Cratinus fr. 19 Kock, now 21 K.-A.
[2] Something is wrong here: Thucydides does not use this word. Editors note with approval the suggestion of C.J. Blomfield (1786-1857) that this sentence belongs with alpha 2699.
[3] From the scholia to Homer, Odyssey 13.14, where the word occurs.
