Grammatical information: f.
Meaning: toothed fish(?) (Epich. 69, Arist., H.).
Other forms: also συναγρίς (Arist.), -ίδος.
Derivatives: Cf. συνοδοντίς as fishname (Strömberg 45) and κρεαγρίς, παναγρίς, governing compound to ἀγρεύω, ἄγρα; the v. l. συαγρίς after σύαγρος (s. on σῦς); this is rather improbable. Ngr. συνακρίδα; on this also Thumb ClassQuart. 8, 193.
Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]
Etymology: Furnée 123f. starts from σύαξ, -κος, συάκιον n. (Su.); συάκιν (gloss.) kind of flatfish. He takes συναγρίς (Arist.) rather as folketymol. for the form without nasal. The word will then be Pre-Greek.
