Translation:

Carcinon is Greek for the disease called cancer, but it is better written with 'k', as below in the entry Karkinos; q.v.


Commentary:

καρκίνος /karkínos/, Simon shows the accusative sg. form καρκίνον /karkínon/, is originally a "crab" and then extended to mean "eating sore or ulcer, cancer".
