Aristophanes [speaking] about Lysistratos [uses this word]. "Extremely sea-worked with evils, always going cold and hungry more than 39 days each month."[1] That is, one dyed in evils, or one deep in evils. The word is transferred from the dying of sea-dyed purple, because the shellfish is retrieved from the deep. The purple is 'sea-work'.
