Headword: Ἐγκρυφίας
Adler number: epsilon,131
Translated headword: ash-baked
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning a] loaf of bread covered in wood-ash. The 3 measures of flour, out of which the ἐγκρυφίας was made, alludes to the three-day burial of the Bread of Life.
Greek Original:
Ἐγκρυφίας: ἄρτος ἐν σποδῷ κεκρυμμένος. τὰ δὲ γ# μέτρα τῆς σεμιδάλεως, ἐξ ὧν ὁ ἐγκρυφίας ἐγίνετο, τὴν τριήμερον τοῦ ἄρτου τῆς ζωῆς ταφὴν ὑπαινίττεται.
Notes:
Comment on Genesis 18.6 LXX (Abraham bids Sarah make bread for the visiting angels); again at sigma 218. Adler does not identify the source, but it is identifiable via the TLG as John of Damascus, Homilia in sabbatum sanctum PG 96.624.
See also Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 3.110B (3.74 Kaibel), who writes of ὁ παρ' Ἀττικοῖς ἐγκρυφίας , i.e. 'in Attic writers' (though Gulick in the Loeb edition renders the phrase 'of the Athenians'). He also says that 'Alexandrians' had such bread, provided for all-comers in 'the temple of Kronos'.
