[Meaning] the [sc. discarded] peelings of vegetables. Aristophanes [writes]: "put some dry husks into the basket for me."[1] That is, withered and cheap [ones]; for beggars eat such things. Φυλλεῖα [are] also the leaves of lettuce.[2]

Φυλλεῖα: τὰ ἀπολεπίσματα τῶν λαχάνων. Ἀριστοφάνης: εἰς τὸ σπυρίδιον ἰσχνά μοι φυλλεῖα δός. οἷον μεμαραμμένα καὶ εὐτελῆ: τοιαῦτα γὰρ οἱ πτωχοὶ ἐσθίουσι. φυλλεῖα δὲ τὰ τῆς θριδακίνης φύλλα.
