Headword: *xe/dropas
Adler number: chi,181
Translated headword: legumes
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] pulses.[1] And in the singular [it is] "legume" (xe/droy), a pulse.[2] Thus Thucydides [sc. uses this word].[3]
Greek Original:
*xe/dropas: o)/spria. kai\ e(nikw=s xe/droy, to\ o)/sprion. ou(/tws *qoukudi/dhs.
Again at omicron 706.
[1] Accusative plural(s), the headword one evidently quoted from somewhere (perhaps Aristotle, History of Animals 594b7).
[2] Thus far the entry = Etymologicum Genuinum; cf. Hesychius, Etymologium Magnum 808.14, Lexicum Ambrosianum 137 and 164 (according to Adler), Erotian 93.5 (= Aristophanes of Byzantium fr. 90 Nauck), Orion [Author, Myth] 163.33.
[3] Not extant in Thucydides. The name, as scholars have noted, is probably an error; suggested alternatives are Theophrastus and (cf. tau 944) Thugenides.
Keywords: botany; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; philosophy
