  • Iphigenia, for instance, is a form of an ancient anthropoctonous goddess, identified with Artemis.

    —Gilbert Murray, 1911, The Rise of the Greek Epic

    This is virtually the only instance of the word in English. Adapted from Greek anthrôpo-kton-os "person-killing" (related by ablaut to the verb ktein- "kill").
