Kamedreos and camepitheos; all the lemmata starting with kame-, which is Greek for "very low {growing on the ground}", are better written with "ch" in accord with the Greek original, as is shown {in the entry Chamedryos} above.


Contrary to his statement Simon himself writes most entries starting with chi {i.e. Greek Χ,χ = /Kh,kh/} with 'c' only, cf. the appropriate entries after C littera, unless scribal corruption changed these during the transmission process.

is Greek χαμαί /khamaí/ "on the ground; to earth", showing the late Greek vowel change from αι > ε {/ai/ > /e/}, resulting in /khamé/.
