Βορόν: βρωτικόν. ὀξυτόνως. Ἀριστοφάνης: μιαρὸν τὸ χρῆμα, κάκοσμον καὶ βορόν. καὶ ὕδωρ βορόν, ἀγρυπνίη βορόν: ζήτει ἐν τῷ ὕδωρ βορόν.
Notes:
The headword adjective, neuter nominative/accusative singular, is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] i.e. with an acute accent on the final syllable: βορόν .
[2] Aristophanes, Peace 38 (web address 1 below).
[3] upsilon 52, where however nominative "insomnia" has become dative, ruining the sense. The quotation is from Hippocrates, De morbis popularibus 6.4.18.
