Headword: Porkos
Adler number: pi,2077
Translated headword: weel
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] a maritime cage, for the trapping of fish.
Greek Original:
Porkos: kurtos thalassios, ho eis agran ichthuôn.
Note:
From Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon; same or similar glossing in other lexica (references at Photius pi1101 Theodoridis). Though the headword occurs in comedy, the passage that has generated the present entry is probably Plato, Sophist 220C (accusative plural); Timaeus explicitly mentions Plato in his adjacent, longer entry on the same word.
Keywords: comedy; daily life; definition; food; philosophy; trade and manufacture; zoology
