Greek display:    

Headword: Κηρυκίνη ῥάβδος
Adler number: kappa,1548
Translated headword: herald's staff
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] that of Hermes.
Greek Original:
Κηρυκίνη ῥάβδος: ἡ τοῦ Ἑρμοῦ.
The same as the κηρύκειον of kappa 1544, kappa 1545 and kappa 1546. The adjective is only attested in this definition in lexica; in kappa 1540, it is used to refer to women collecting menstrual cloth (apparently from Damascius). So the lexica may be preserving an ancient citation here.
Keywords: definition; military affairs; religion
