[Meaning] making desolate. From a metaphor of pomegranates, which are expelling their seeds; for just as the cities are the shelters of men, so also are the pomegranates of their seeds. The rustic [Trygaeus] used this metaphor. Aristophanes [writes]: "o Zeus, do you not see that you are de-seeding your own cities?"[1]
