[1] The same gloss is used in Synagoge theta16 (and Photius, Lexicon theta34), and is among the glosses in Hesychius theta135, for the simple headword qa=tton ('more/rather quickly'). Etymologically the two words are equivalent, as comparative adjectives/adverbs formed from the combination of proto-Greek *qax-/qaxu- and the suffix -ion the headword being a more ancient formation (in Attic dialect, other dialects having qa=sson), and the gloss, ta/xion, a newer coining that is sparsely attested prior to the Common Era. Of the five quotations that follow, only the fourth contains the entire headword phrase. The rest illustrate the use of qa=tton alone. For other entries involving qa=tton/qa=sson see theta 64, theta 65 and theta 66.
