The [sc. same thing as] amongst us, which we use for defecation.[1]

*(uphre/sion: to\ par' h(mi=n, w(=| xrw/meqa ei)s a)po/paton. oi( de\ a)mi/da le/gousin.
[1] No such meaning of the headword u(phre/sion is registered in LSJ s.v., where the senses given are cushion on a rower's bench, riding-pad or saddle-cloth, rowers' pay, and as an equivalent of u(phretiko\n ploi=on; cf. generally upsilon 415, upsilon 416. The sense here seems to derive from u(phre/ths "servant, attendant" (upsilon 432) where the connection with rowing (e)re/ths, e)re/ssein) has been forgotten.
[2] (Addendum lacking, Adler reports, in ms A.) From alpha 1590.
