Meaning: `orach, Atriplex rosea' (Hp.).
Other forms: ἀδράφαξυς (ἁδρ-), ἀνδράφαξυς, ἀτράφαξις, cf. Hdn. Gr. 1, 539; 2, 49; 467 and Strömberg Pflanz. 160 .
Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]
Etymology: Unknown. Generally considered a loan. Clearly a substr. word, as the variants δ\/τ, prenasal., (and perh. υ\/ι) are typical for these words; folk etymology (after ἁδρός, ἀνήρ) is unconvincing. Fur. 179 etc. - Lat. atriplex is a loan from Greek rather than a parallel loan.
