Headword: Κροαίνων
Adler number: kappa,2457
Translated headword: stamping
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning someone] striking with the feet. Or desiring.
Greek Original:
Κροαίνων: τοῖς ποσὶ κρούων, ἢ ἐπιθυμῶν.
The headword is present participle, masculine nominative singular, of the verb κροαίνω . Same glossing in other lexica, and cf. a scholion on Homer, Iliad 6.507 (= 15.264), where it is used of a horse in a simile (web address 1, and quoted under alpha 935).
According to Aristonicus, Archilochus was wrong to interpret κροαίνων as "desiring" (but the verb does not appear among the fragments of the poet Archilochus). Apollonius the Sophist offers both interpretations as alternatives.
The participle also occurs in an Anacreontic fragment (West 60.6), where the context is musical ("striking up a melody").
