بَرْبَطٌ

[The Persian lute;] a certain musical instrument (Lth, Mṣb) of the عَجَمَ [or Persians]; (Mṣb;) i. q. عُوِدٌ: (Lth, Ḳ:) an arabicized word, (Ḳ,) from بَرِبَتْ, (IAth,) or بَرِبَطْ; meaning “the breast of the duck, or goose;” because of its resemblance thereto; (Ḳ;) for بَرْ in Persian, signifies the “breast;” (TA;) [and بَتْ and بَطْ or بَطّْ, like the Arabic بَطٌّ, “a duck,” or “goose;”] or because the player upon it places it against his breast: (IAth:) or it is said to be arabicized because it is the name of a musical instrument of the عجم. (Mṣb.)
