Adler number: chi,300

Vetting Status: high
[i.e.] χίδρον , the pulse that comes from millet, a foodstuff [eaten] in the area around Caria; it is from green barley. But some [sc. define it as] a type of plant. From this there is indication of a good season.
Greek Original:
Χίδραν: χίδρον, τὸ ἀπὸ ἐλύμου γινόμενον ὄσπριον, ἔδεσμα περὶ Καρίαν, ἤτοι τὸ ἀπὸ χλωρῶν κριθῶν. οἱ δὲ εἶδος βοτάνης. ἐκ δὲ τούτου δηλοῖ τὴν εὐετηρίαν.
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Peace 595, where the word χῖδρα occurs. The form of the present headword, χίδραν , is due to a corruption which mistakes the common plural of the neuter noun χῖδρον for a singular feminine noun, χίδρα ; see LSJ s.v. χῖδρον at web address 1 below. See also chi 298, chi 299, and chi 301 for more on "groats".
