"[Kleigenes] the Small, the most rascally bathman of all who are masters of ash-mixing, sham-soda dust and Kimolian earth." "Ash-mixing" [is] ash mixed with soda. "Kimolian" [is a kind of] white earth. So he is saying that [Kleigenes] is most rascally [skilled] in every earth which bathmen master, Kimolian and ash and the similar stuff. He is introducing him as a bathman, small in stature.
