[ke/kraqi means the same as] kra/con.
Greek Original:
*ke/kraqi: kra/con.
The transmitted headword purports to be a reduplicated aorist imperative of kra/zw (kappa 2316, cf. kappa 1264, kappa 1266), attested only here, in two derivative entries in ps.-Zonaras, and (according to Adler) in the Ambrosian Lexicon; it is glossed with the commonplace form. However, the edition of Aemilius Portus (1630) attractively emends to ke/kraxqi, a perfect imperative found in Aristophanes (Wasps 198, Thesmophoriazusae 692), Menander (Samia 580), and Lucian (Timon 53).
cf. discussions in ps.-Herodian, the Etymologicum Gudianum, and the Etymologicum Magnum.
