(Ḳ.) You say, ذَنَبَ الإِبِلَ andاستذنبها↓ He followed the camels. (A: there mentioned among proper significations.) El-Kilábee says,
* وَجَآءَتِ الخَيْلُ جَمِيعَا تَذْنُبُهْ *
[And the horses, or horsemen, came all together, following him]. (Ṣ [in which the meaning is indicated by the context; but whether it be proper or tropical in this instance is not shown].) And Ru-beh says,

ذَنَّبَتِ البُسْرَةُ, (T, Ṣ, M, Ḳ,) or ذَنَّبَ البُسْرُ, (Aṣ, A, Mgh,) or الرُّطَبُ, (Mṣb,) inf. n. تَذْنِيبٌ, (Mṣb, Ḳ,) ‡ [The full-grown unripe date or dates, or the ripening dates,] began to ripen, (Mgh, and so in a copy of the Ṣ,) or showed ripening, (Mṣb, and so in a copy of the Ṣ,) or became speckled by reason of ripening, (Aṣ, T, M, Ḳ,) or ripened, (A,) at the ذَنَب, (Aṣ, T, Ṣ, M, A, Mgh, Ḳ,) i. e. the part next the base and stalk.

ذنّب الأَفْعَى, said of a ضَبّ, It turned its tail towards the viper, or met the viper tail-foremost, in coming forth from its hole; contr. of رَأَّسَ الأَفْعَى. (TA in art. رأس.)

ذَنَّبْتُ كَلَامَهُ [and كِتَابَهُ ‡ I added an appendix to his discourse and his writing, or book; like ذَيَّلْتُهُ]. (A, TA.) [Hence, the inf. n. تَذْنِيبٌ is used to signify † An appendix; like تَذْيِيلٌ.]

اذنب He committed a sin, crime, fault, misdemeanour, &c.; (Ṣ,* M,* A,* MA, Ḳ;*) he became chargeable with a ذَنْب [or sin, &c.]: (Mṣb:) it is an instance, among others, of a verb of which no proper inf. n. has been heard; [ذَنْبٌ being used instead of such, as a quasi-inf. n.;] for إِذْنَابٌ, like إِكْرَامٌ, [though mentioned in the KL, as signifying the committing of a sin or the like, and also in the TḲ,] has not been heard. (MF.)

(M.)

The tail; syn. ذَيْلٌ: (TA: [in the CK, الذِّنْبِىُّ is erroneously put for الذِّنْبِىَّ:]) but accord. to Fr, one uses the first of these words in relation to the horse, and the second in relation to the bird: (T:) or the first is used in relation to the horse (Ṣ, A) and the ass [and the like] (Ṣ) more commonly than the second; (Ṣ, A;*) and the second is used in relation to a bird (Ṣ, M, A, Mṣb) more commonly than the first, (Ṣ, M,*) or more chastely: (M,* Mṣb:) or the second is [properly] of a winged creature; and the first is of any other; but the second is sometimes, metaphorically, of the horse: (Er-Riyáshee, TA:) or, as some say, the second signifies the place of growth of the ذَنَب [or tail]: (M:) the pl. of ذَنَبٌ is أَذْنَابٌ. (Ṣ, M, A, Mṣb, Ḳ.) [Hence the following phrases &c.]

The fifty have turned their tail to me]. (M, TA.)

You say, كَانَ ذٰلِكَ فِى ذَنَبِ الدَّهْرِ † That was in the end of the time [past]. (M.)

[as meaning For you shall be a great bucket, and for us a great bucket: or, if ye refuse this, for us shall be the well]. (T.) [Accord. to the Ḳ, it also signifies A grave: but this is evidently a mistake, which seems to have arisen from a misunderstanding of a statement by ISd, who says,] Aboo-Dhu-eyb uses it metaphorically in relation to a grave, calling it [i. e. the grave] a well, in his saying,
* فَكُنْتُ ذَنُوبَ البِئْرَ لَمَّا تَبَسَّلَتْ ** وَسُرْبِلْتُ أَكْفَانِى وَوُسِّدْتُ سَاعِدِى *
[app. meaning ‡ And I was as though I were the corpse of the grave (lit. the bucket of the well) when she frowned, and clad with my grave-clothes, and made to recline upon my upper arm: for the corpse is laid in the grave upon its right side, or so inclined that the face is turned towards Mekkeh]. (M.) [And Umeiyeh Ibn-Abee- 'Áïdh El-Hudhalee, describing a wild he-ass and she-asses, likens to it a certain rate of running which he contrasts with another rate likened by him to a well such as is termed خَسِيفٌ: see Kosegarten's “Carmina Hudsailitarum,” p. 189.]
Hence metaphorically applied to ‡ Rain. (Ḥam p. 410.)
[Hence, also,] ‡ A lot, share, or portion: (Fr, T, Ṣ, M, A, Mṣb, Ḳ:) [see the former of the two verses cited in this paragraph:] in this sense masc.: (Mṣb:) and in this sense it is used in the Ḳur li. last verse but one. (Fr, T, M.)

Accord. to Fr and the Ṣ, it signifies also A fluid like mucus that falls from the noses of camels: but this is a mistake: the right word, as stated by IB and others, is ذُنَانَى. (L, MF, TA.)
