Headword: Χίδραν
Adler number: chi,300
Translated headword: groats
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[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.
Note:
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".
