Adler number: pi,3108

Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the mouldings of columns.[1] Also the [parts] of our bodies around the os sacrum.[2]
Also [sc. attested is] pugai=os ["buttocky"], [meaning] a man with no discipline.[3]
Greek Original:
*pugai=a: ta\s spei/ras tw=n kio/nwn. kai\ tou= sw/matos h(mw=n ta\ kata\ to\ i(ero\n o)stou=n. kai\ *pugai=os, o( a)ko/lastos.
[1] This gloss shows that the neuter plural headword is in the accusative case, evidently quoted from somewhere.
[2] As we see here (and elsewhere), Latin os sacrum is a direct rendering of the Greek i(ero\n o)ste/on (LSJ s.v. i(ero/s, IV.10).
[3] Attested only here.
