STRONGS NT 2769: κεράτιον

κεράτιον, κερατιου, τό (diminutive of κέρας);

1. a little horn.

2. the name of the fruit of the κερατέα or κερατεια (or κερατια), the Ceratonia sillqua (Linn.) or carob tree (called also St. John's Bread (from the notion that its pods, which resemble those of the 'locust', constituted the food of the Baptist)). This fruit is shaped like a horn and has a sweet taste; it was (and is) used not only in fattening swine, but as an article of food by the lower classes: Luke 15:16 (A. V. husks); cf. Winers RWB, under the word Johannisbrodbaum; (B. D. (especially American edition) under the word ).

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
