Headword: *deusopoio/s
Adler number: delta,291
Translated headword: deep-dyed
Vetting Status: high
In an exact sense it is the word applied to purple which retains the bloom of the dye permanently and indelibly; metaphorically speaking [it is applied] to everything else which retains its color permanently and in perpetuity.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] "deep-dyed wickedness": the expression is derived from dyed fleeces. It signifies a firm and indelible color. Whenever historians want to indicate something unalterable, they use the expression of other things too. Consequently, "deep-dyed" wickedness is the excessive, irresistible kind.[2]
