[Genitive] ῥαγός . [Used] in reference to a bunch [of grapes]. But ῥώξ , genitive ῥωγός , [is used] in reference to a spider.[1]
Also [sc. attested is] ῥαγολόγος ["berry-gatherer"], [meaning] the hedgehog.[2]
Greek Original:
Ῥάξ, ῥαγός: ἐπὶ σταφυλῆς. Ῥὼξ δέ, ῥωγός, ἐπὶ φαλαγγίου. καὶ Ῥαγολόγος, ὁ ἐχῖνος.
Notes:
[1] Similar notes in other lexica and grammars; cf. scholion on Nicander, Theriaca 715 (where the 'spider' usage occurs). In Ionic and later Greek, ῥώξ is used for ῥάξ (LSJ s.v.), so this note is prescribing Attic usage. See also rho 253, rho 254.
[2] cf. rho 10.
Keywords: botany; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; food; poetry; zoology
