Greek Original:
Ἴκριον. ἰκρίῳ Ἰουδαῖοι τὸν σωτῆρα προσήλωσαν. ἴκριον γὰρ ἐπὶ τοῦ τάφου κεῖσθαι τοῦ κενοταφίου. Θουκυδίδης. γνώρισμα ἐπιχώριον καὶ νόμιμον Ἀττικὸν τῶν ἐπὶ δυστυχίᾳ τετελευτηκότων καὶ μὴ ἐν Ἀθήναις ταφέντων.
The neuter singular ἴκριον is not classical (for the plural see iota 275), but is used by Christian writers: see Lampe s.v.
