Headword: Ὄργασον
Adler number: omicron,507

Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Properly [meaning] treat with pitch. For pitch [is] ὀργὴ among Ionians. And it signifies both a filling with lust and engaging in an orgy. And make supple. Aristophanes [writes]: "having stripped, temper the clay." Meaning mix [it], make [it] supple.
Greek Original:
Ὄργασον: κυρίως τὸ πίσσωσον. ὀργὴ γὰρ παρ' Ἴωσιν ἡ πίσσα. σημαίνει δὲ καὶ τὸ σπαργᾶν καὶ ὀργιάζεσθαι. καὶ τὸ μάλαξον. Ἀριστοφάνης: πηλὸν ἀποδὺς ὄργασον. ἀντὶ τοῦ φύρασον, μάλαξον.
