[Referring to] Demeter's crop.
Greek Original:
Ὀτρυλήφατος: ὁ Δημητριακὸς καρπός.
Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (592), but longer ones elsewhere indicate that the headword in this otherwise-unattested ὀτρυλήφατος form [ὀτρυγήφατος in mss G and, after correction, M] is a mistake, and they also present the glossing phrase in a fuller and more intelligible way. See e.g. Hesychius alpha8169 and omicron1519, and especially Photius, Lexicon omicron596 Theodoridis s.v. ὀτρυγηφάγον : τὸν κριθοφάγον. Ἀρχίλοχος (fr.43.3 West) κατὰ πλεονασμὸν τοῦ ο: τρύγη γὰρ ὁ Δημητριακὸς κάρπος . See the note in Theodoridis for other versions, and LSJ s.v. τρυγηφάγος (sic). Hesychius, as indicated, registers both alpha and omicron spellings; other lexica make a link with the epic adjective ἀτρύγετος .
