Headword: *ka/xrus
Adler number: kappa,1156
Translated headword: parched barley
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] barleycorns.[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "[...] drinking, as if a woman grinding parched barley." That is, just like some woman grinding barleycorns.[2]
Greek Original:
*ka/xrus: ta\s kriqa/s. *)aristofa/nhs: pi/nonq', w(sperei\ ka/xrus gunai=k' a)lou=san. toute/sti kaqa/per tina\ gunai=ka kriqa\s a)lou=san.
[1] The headword is accusative plural of ka/xrus (presumably from the quotation given); cf. kappa 12, kappa 1155, kappa 2753. The equivalence twice given here between it and krithai is unexceptionable enough, though strictly speaking the headword describes barleycorns when they have dried for purposes of preservation.
[2] Aristophanes, Clouds 1358 (web address 1), with scholion.
