Adler reasonably connects this entry with Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 3.114D-E (3.81 Kaibel): "Philemon in book 1 of Sacrifices of All Kinds says that ... βλωμιαῖοι is the name for loaves which have incisions, the ones Romans call κόδρατοι [quadrati]". The Loeb editor of Athenaeus, C.B. Gulick, translates kodratoi as "squares"; perhaps rather "quarters", i.e. quarter-circles, like the Irish farl, baked as a round; cf. also the hot-cross bun. Be that as it may, the possibility should be considered that the adjective in the present headword, κοδρίτης , is a corruption of a quite different one, χονδρίτης , i.e. made from coarsegrain flour (see LSJ s.v.).
