Headword: *krommuocuregmi/as
Adler number: kappa,2465
Translated headword: of an onion-vinegar-belch
Vetting Status: high
Meaning of indigestion; for such a belch [is] sharp and unpleasant. So he has composed the expression from onions [kro/mmua] and acidity [o)cu/ths] and belching [e)rugh/]. For they habitually take these [foods] into war. For this reason also the bag [is] bad-smelling from these. Or also because the bag being covered for a long time with various relishes and sauces gives out a certain smell mixed with vinegar.
