Headword: Κρομμυοξυρεγμίας
Adler number: kappa,2465
Translated headword: of an onion-vinegar-belch
Vetting Status: high
Meaning of indigestion; for such a belch [is] sharp and unpleasant. So he has composed the expression from onions [κρόμμυα ] and acidity [ὀξύτης ] and belching [ἐρυγή ]. For they habitually take these [foods] into war. For this reason also the bag [is] bad-smelling from these. Or also because the bag being covered for a long time with various relishes and sauces gives out a certain smell mixed with vinegar.
Greek Original:
Κρομμυοξυρεγμίας: ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀπεψίας: δριμεῖα γὰρ καὶ ἀηδὴς ἡ τοιαύτη ἐρυγή. ἀπὸ τῶν κρομμύων οὖν καὶ τῆς ὀξύτητος καὶ τῆς ἐρυγῆς συντέθεικε τὴν λέξιν. ταῦτα γὰρ εἰώθασι κομίζειν εἰς πόλεμον. διὸ καὶ ὁ γύλιος ἐκ τούτων δυσώδης. ἢ καὶ ὅτι ἐπὶ πολὺ ἐγκαλυπτόμενος ὁ γύλιος ἐκ διαφόρων ὄψων τε καὶ ζωμῶν ὀξίδος σύμμικτόν τινα ὀσμὴν ὄδωδε.
