Andrafraxis is the word used by Dyascorides for Latin atriplex {"orache"}. It is also known by other names, as will become clear in different entries.


Simon refers ultimately to Dioscorides Longobardus, 2, 103, ed. Stadler (1899: 219) De andrafraxin id est catone, where a latinized form of Greek ἀνδράφραξυς /andráphraxys/ is used, one of a number of variants found in Greek as the name for this vegetable.
