Headword: *ka/gxru
Adler number: kappa,12
Translated headword: parched barley
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] barleycorns.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] "parched-barley bread".[2]
Parched-barley therefore [means] the ground barleycorns.[3]

*ka/gxru: ta\s kriqa/s. kai\ *kagxrudi/as a)/rtos. *ka/gxrus ou)=n ta\s a)lhlesme/nas kriqa/s.
[1] The headword as transmitted -- unless this is one of Adler's rare misprints -- appears to be neuter singular (so suggesting a connection with frankincense: see LSJ s.v. ka/xrus, web address 1). The glossing, again at the end of the entry, is for the feminine accusative plural; and cf. kappa 1156.
[2] Also mentioned in a scholion on Aristophanes, Clouds 1358.
[3] The source of this, as noted in Adler's addenda, is a scholion on Aristophanes, Knights 254.
