Headword: *)asfa/ragon
Adler number: alpha,4297
Translated headword: gullet
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] throat,[1] stomach, neck. It is also the word for the off-shoot growing off thorn plants. But asparagos is a certain type of plant, suitable for cleansing [sc. of morbid humours]. Thus the Attic [writers] cite the word with the phi, but many who are not precise say it with the pi.[2] And generally they call the first parts of herbs/vegetables to be seen "asparagus".[3]
