Etymological

-ωπος
Grammatical information: m.
Meaning: kind of oak (Thphr.), also haver-grass (Thphr.); also ulcer in the eye, lacrymal fistula for which see ἀγχίλωψ. For the meaning s. Strömberg Pflanzennamen 87.
Origin: XX [etym. unknown]
Etymology: As name of an oak derived from *aig- Pok. 13 (seen in αἰγανέη and αἴγειρος?). Kretschmer Glotta 3, 335 connected -λωψ with λώπη cork (cf. λώψ χλαμύς H.) adducing Pliny (Hist. nat. 16, 6, 13): aegilops fert pannos arentes ... non in cortice modo, verum et e ramis dependentes. The whole rather doubtful. - Strömberg Pflanzennamen 137 derives αἰγίλωψ in the second meaning from αἴγιλος haver-grass (Theoc.), which is certainly correct.
