Also [sc. attested is the corresponding singular] bebusme/non, [meaning] filled-up.[2]
[Or] covered-up.
Aristophanes [writes]: "give me a little pot stuffed-full with a sponge".[3] [He says this] either because they used to bring a pot in which there was a sponge filled with honey, which they would place in the mouths of the children for them to suck; or because the poor plug up the holes of the pot with sponges. Or [meaning] perforated with holes everywhere.

[1] The headword (which must be quoted from somewhere) is perfect middle/passive participle, neuter nominative/accusative plural, of bu/w; cf. beta 592. Same glossing elsewhere -- but the second gloss, transmitted as peprwme/na, has been doubted; Kuster suggested peplhrwme/na ("filled up").
[2] cf. preceding note (and beta 225).
[3] Aristophanes, Acharnians 463, with scholia; cf. sigma 952.
