Headword: *kaph/ria
Adler number: kappa,338
Translated headword: caperia, kaperia
Vetting Status: high
A kind of flat-cake; the ones [called] kapu/ria among us.
Greek Original:
*kaph/ria: ei)=dos plakou=ntos: ta\ par' h(mi=n kapu/ria.
Entry lacking, Adler reports, in ms F.
The headword, evidently neuter plural, is attested only here; kapu/ria however appears in a third century CE papyrus (POxy 1655.3). These words are possibly variants for kapuri/dia, which is mentioned in a quotation from the cookbook author Chrysippus of Tyana in Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 3.113D [3.79 Kaibel].
From the gloss here, it seems that the spelling kaph/ria might be foreign in usage or origin; the two forms given here would have been pronounced the same in later Greek.
