Headword: *thli/a
Adler number: tau,496
Translated headword: tray
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] plank, the so-called kneading-trough, being a sort of shli/a; just as sh/meron [is a variant of] th/meron. Furthermore there was a special sense of thli/a, [i.e.] a construction of planks in the agora, on which barley-groats were offered for sale. And the quail-breeders used to collect the quails on this. Alternatively: a broad plank, on which they make barley-groats; but some claim [it to be] a broad timber onto which bakers place their loaves for drying out. Others [say that]a telia [is] the lid of a chimney, that is [its] rim. So he is saying "you might draw [me] through a ring, if the ring were a telia'. Aristophanes [writes this]. Or a telia is a plank without holes. If it had holes, it would be a mesh.
