Headword: Χαυῶνας
Adler number: chi,152
Translated headword: chauones
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] barley loaves mixed with olive-oil; or roasted vegetables.
Greek Original:
Χαυῶνας: ἄρτους ἐλαίῳ ἀναφυραθέντας κριθίνους: ἢ λάχανα ὀπτά.
The headword, actually accusative plural, is a Greek transliteration of the Hebrew כון kawwan, taken from the Septuagint: Jeremiah 51(44):19, cf. 7:18. In both contexts the word refers to cakes offered to Near Eastern deities like Astarte. There seems no extant example of χαυῶνες meaning "roasted vegetables".
Same entry in Lexica Segueriana 413.28, Etymologicum Magnum 807.43-4, and cf. already Hesychius chi243.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; religion
