Quetire pro chitire idem scripsit et est dragantum.


Quetire ABC e | Queirre f

chitire ABC f | kithire ms. e

et om. f

dragantum (-gãtũ e) AC e | dragagantum f | diadragantum B


The same {i.e. the previously mentioned Stephanus} writes quetire instead of chitire and it is dragantum {"gum tragacanth"}.


Wehr (1976): ﻛﺛﻴﺮﺍ /kaṯirā/ "tragacanth (Astragalus gummifer Lab.; bot.) gum obtained from tragacanth".

"Qu" is to be pronounced /k/, i.e. /ketire/. Cf. appropriate section in the Commentary of Q littera.

See also: Tragagantum, Kitira, Dragagantum gummi
