Headword: Καλαμᾶται
Adler number: kappa,192
Translated headword: gleans
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] harvests the upper [parts] of the olive-trees, or eats [them] up.
Greek Original:
Καλαμᾶται: τρυγᾷ τὰ ἀνώτερα τῶν ἐλαῶν, ἢ κατεσθίει.
Notes:
See also the entry of Hesychius, who adds the word "parts" [μέρη ] in his gloss (kappa397).
The headword verb must be quoted from somewhere, probably -- as Latte on Hesychius asserts -- commentary on Deuteronomy 24.20 LXX (where the aorist infinitive καλαμήσασθαι occurs).
cf. generally kappa 194.
Keywords: agriculture; botany; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; religion
