This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ... Greeks used it to designate their early meal in the morning, which was not a full meal, but only light eating, similar to our "lunch."
