  • krithinos (sorry, I dunno how to do greek letters), means, "to be made of, or from, barley". See Babrius, Aeschylus, and Xenophon for uses. So, your word sounds correct to me.

    To confuse you even more, there's "oinos krithown", a kind of barley wine, mentioned in Herodotus. So, take your pick. :)

      Thanks a lot! krithinos sounds perfectly fine in French, chances are it'll fare better with its intended audience than zuthocephalic (zuthos being cervesia, see above).

      Inputting the greek letters depends on your OS, but most have little utilities to do that. On KDE I have something called charkbd (IIRC), on Windows there's charmap, and I haven't had to do that on the iBook yet but I'm sure there's a way.
