[171] In later usage χεὶρ ἑτέρα signifies the ‘left hand,’ as in the phrase “οὐ τῇ ἑτέρᾳ ληπτέονPlat. Soph.226A; cp. Il.18. 477.

θηρίον, according to Classen, Jahrb. f. Phil. 1859, p. 314, is not a diminutive from “θήρ”, but the termination distinguishes a particular creature from the general collective noun. So we may contrast “χρυσίον” with “χρυσός”.
