Adler number: kappa,392
Translated headword: karkadon
Vetting Status: high
This is the name of Charon [Author, Myth]'s fee, levied from the obol which is buried along with the dead; not, as some erroneously claim it to be, the name of a plant.
Greek Original:
*karka/dona: tou=to le/getai *xa/rontos da/neion, sunago/menon e)k tou= o)bolou= tou= sugkhdeuome/nou toi=s teleutw=sin: ou)x w(s e)/nioi planw/menoi bota/nhs o)/noma/ fasin ei)=nai.
The headword -- here in the accusative case, so evidently quoted from somewhere -- is unattested outside lexicography (here and Photius).
For Charon [Author, Myth] see chi 135 (and alpha 1998, chi 140).
