[Spelled] with iota [this is a term for] barley.[1] Homer says kri with apocope: "[the horses] stand feeding on white barley."[2] Also [sc. attested is the adjective] polukrimnos, [meaning] abounding in barley.[3]
And in the Epigrams: "the old man is self-sufficient when he has salt and two barley-corns."[4]
And Babrius [writes]: "but I will not desert the humble clod under which I munch my barley without fear."[5]
But krimnon [is] the coarse part of the meal.
