Headword: *di/krana
Adler number: delta,1106
Translated headword: pitchforks
Vetting Status: high
"Pitchforks, too, had been prepared, so as to push away the bringing-up of the so-called scalae ["ladders"]."
Greek Original:
*di/krana: pareskeu/asto de\ kai\ di/krana w(/ste a)pwqei=sqai th\n tw=n legome/nwn skalw=n prosagwgh/n.
The headword, neuter nominative plural, is presumably extracted from the quotation given, an unidentifiable siege-narrative (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti).
The noun dikranon appears in contexts of comedy/satire (Aristophanes, Lucian) and medicine (Galen) as well as lexica and grammars (Hesychius, Herodian, Photius, ps.-Zonaras, the Etymologicum Magnum). It is a wooden (Etym.Magn. 506.18) gardening implement as well as a defensive weapon; cf. the diminutive in the gloss at delta 1109 (LSJ entry at web address 1). The adjective dikranos means "two-headed."
For ska/la, Latin scala, cf. alpha 1811, kappa 1806, sigma 520.
