The article aims to present one of the possible interpretations of a unique noun ekchyton found in the epigram of Palladas of Alexandria AP IX 395. As its meaning seems at least doubtful, it makes the satisfactory translation and interpretation of the poem utterly unachievable. The problem may be solved, if we recognize the word ekchyton as a sociolect, which corresponds with another noun egchytos that is sufficiently attested in ancient Greek literature. The analysis of source texts lets us interpret the meaning of the word egchytos as a kind of elegant baking that consists of finely ground flour, a large amount of honey, eggs and cottage cheese or sour milk. Ekchyton, in that case, can be interpreted as ‘a honey cake with cheese’.
