Acharpos grece .i. sine fructu sic dicitur quedam species libanotis et quedam edere ut suis locis patebit.


Apparatus:

Acharpos B e | Acharipos f | Acapos AC | Acarpos H

libanotis ABC ef | libanotidos H

suis locis patebit ABCH e | patebit in locis suis f


Translation:

Acharpos is Greek and it means "without fruit"; a certain kind of libanotis {"rosemary"} is given this epithet and one of edera {"ivy"}, as will become clear in their respective entries.


Commentary:

Greek ἄκαρπος /ákarpos/, "without fruit, barren", consists of ἀ- /a-/ {similar to English "un-, non"} + καρπός /karpós/ {"fruit; seed"} > "without fruit".

The word does indeed appear in Simon's entry Libanotis, but not in Edera.
