See generally LSJ s.v. korw/nh (a feminine noun with many senses -- kappa 2105). The present related headword, korwne/ws, occurs (in the accusative case) in Aristophanes: see below.
[1] Here fia/lews is a corruption of fiba/lews, a type of early fig, with which korw/news is compared grammatically in Herodian, De prosodia catholica p. 245 Lentz. For both this and the headword itself see under phi 287.
[2] Mentioned in Aristophanes, Peace 628; an adjective from korw/nh "shearwater", a sea-bird, or "crow".
[3] The gloss is taken from the scholia ad loc., with "raven-coloured" given as koraki/wna.
