Headword: Γναφεύς
Adler number: gamma,330
Translated headword: fuller
Vetting Status: high
It is applied to washing in the evangelist Mark in the chapter of [ = on] the Transfiguration.[1]
But in the kappa [entry]:[2] there lies a usage of Aristophanes, thus: "if the fullers supplied cloaks to those who needed them, whenever the sun first turned, then pleurisy would never get any of you."[3]
And it seems that the [word] "fuller" [knapheus], from chlaina ["cloak"], is applied to skins.
Greek Original:
Γναφεύς: ἐπὶ τοῦ πλύτου κεῖται παρὰ τῷ εὐαγγελιστῇ Μάρκῳ ἐν τῷ κεφαλαίῳ τῆς μεταμορφώσεως. ἐν δὲ τῷ κάππα: ἐνταῦθα κεῖται τοῦ Ἀριστοφάνους χρῆσις οὕτως: ἢν παρέχωσι τοῖς δεομένοις οἱ κναφεῖς χλαίνας, ἐπειδὰν πρῶτον ἥλιος τραπῇ, πλευρῖτις ἂν ὑμῶν οὐδένα λάβοι ποτέ. καὶ φαίνεται ἀπὸ τῆς χλαίνης τὸ κναφεὺς ἐπὶ τῶν δερματέων κεῖσθαι.
