Pickle is a thing often mentioned. Cratinus Says—
Your basket will be full of briny pickle.
And Pherecrates says—
His beard was all besmear'd with pickle juice.
And Sophocles, in his Triptolemus, says—
Eating this briny season'd pickle.
And Plato the comic writer says—
These men will choke me, steeping me in putrid pickle.
But the word γάρος, pickle, is a masculine noun. As Aeschylus proves, when he says καὶ τὸν ἰχθύων γάρον.
