Aconilithos is Greek for Latin cos {"whetstone"}, that is a stone with which an iron instrument is sharpened.


Cf. Greek ἀκóνη /akónē/, in an itacist pronunciation /akóni/, means on its own "whetstone, hone", and here the word λίθος /líthos/ "stone" is redundantly added, i.e. ἀκóνη λίθος /akónē líthos/.
