- ἀγερρακάβοςGrammatical information: m.Meaning: σταφυλή H.Other forms: ἀγγεράκομον σταφυλήν H. ; ἀγράκαβος σταφυλή Η.Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]Etymology: Latte rejects two of these forms (how to decide which?), as does Fur. 221. I think this is not allowed. The word is anyhow Pre-Greek, like many words concerning wine (e.g. ἀρασχάδες); note the element -αβ-. The -ε- is a prop vowel, Fur. 378ff. (thus these forms are real forms); variation α\/ο and β\/μ are well known (thus these are not mistakes); the γγ may be prenasalization, one of the clearest characteristics of Pre-Greek words (thus the form is real).Page in Frisk: --
