Headword: *kuye/lh e(cme/dimnos
Adler number: kappa,2803
Translated headword: six-bushel cask
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning one] holding six bushels. A cask is a vessel that holds barley or wheat. It is called this [kuye/lh] because the sunshine [e(/lh] is hidden [krup-] in it; for it is dark. It differs from kuyeli/s ['ear-wax'], which is the gunk in the ears.[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "since they also threw a rock and ruined my six-bushel cask."[2]
