LSJ notes that the headword can mean 'acting as waiter' (see Matron, Convivium 1.46, also 1.91), but usually it has the sense of cook, or butcher, or slaughterer (these functions being frequently combined in one person: see LSJ s.v., and especially Plato, Euthyphro 301D).
The word magirus is also attested in late Latin: see Lewis & Short s.v.
[1] Again at mu 14. For barley-cakes, see mu 34.
