Notes:
Same or similar entry in other lexica; see the references at Photius kappa905 Theodoridis, where, as generally elsewhere, the headword noun is spelled with double lambda.
This noun occurs, in the genitive plural, in the Gospels' accounts of Jesus in the temple (Matthew 21.12, Mark 11.15, John 2.15); nevertheless it might be cited here from Menander (fr. 1023 Kock, 590 K.-A.).
Keywords: Christianity; comedy; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; economics; religion; trade and manufacture
