Headword: Τρύχνον
Adler number: tau,1119
Translated headword: trychnos
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the crop.[1] They say trychnon as a [sc. accusative] feminine, not a neuter. I did not find anywhere strychnon [spelled] with the s.[2] Also [sc. the correct form is discernible] from the saying "more delicate than a trychnos". In parody the comic poet says "now I am more cultured than a trychnos".[3]
Greek Original:
Τρύχνον: τὴν πόαν. θηλυκῶς λέγουσιν τὴν τρύχνον, οὐ τὸ τρύχνον. σὺν τῷ σ1 δὲ στρύχνον οὐδαμοῦ εὗρον. καὶ παρὰ τὴν παροιμίαν τὴν ἁπαλώτερος τρύχνου. παρῳδῶν ὁ κωμικός φησιν, ἤδη εἰμὶ μουσικώτερος τρύχνου.
See already alpha 2886. The present entry occurs also in Photius (Lexicon tau533 Theodoridis), taken to come from Aelius Dionysius (tau27), and less fully in other lexica.
[1] This gloss shows that the headword is accusative, and thus evidently quoted from somewhere.
[2] See however LSJ s.v.; the s-form is the more normal (whether neuter or masculine).
[3] Once regarded as an unattributable line of Attic comedy (Comica adespota fr. 605 Kock) but nowadays Aristophanes [who is 'the [sc. too celebrated to need naming] comic poet' at e.g. alpha 4196] fr. 964 K.-A.
