Sorry, no etymologies found.
The chorobate was a ten-foot long wooden trough with a groove running down its middle.
The ancient Romans did pretty well using just three simple instruments: the groma, the chorobate, and measuring rods.
Water was poured into the groove; if it pooled instead of running out either end, then whatever the chorobate was placed on was level.
