A festival celebrated[1] in Athens, [sc. at the time of year] when Kore seems to go away.
Greek Original:
*prosxairhth/ria: e(orth\ par' *)aqhnai/ois grafome/nh, o(/te dokei= a)pie/nai h( *ko/rh.
From Harpokration s.v., commenting on the headword's appearance in the orator Lycurgus (fr.50 Conomis). This festival is attested only there and in the lexicography flowing therefrom.
For Kore (a.k.a. Persephone), daughter of Demeter, see kappa 2077; she 'goes away' to spend part of the year in the Underworld.
[1] The transmitted text has "written," grafome/nh; for "celebrated," a)gome/nh, see Harpok.
