ارتصف It had its several parts put, or joined, together, or together and in regular order; as alsoترصّف↓, [or this means it had its several parts well put, or joined, together, &c., (see 2, of which it is the quasi-pass.,)] andتراصف↓. (M.)

meaning that the wine of which he is speaking was mixed with water of a رَصَف [or ledge of rocks or stones] that had contended, in flowing, with another رَصَف, because of its thereby becoming more clear and more delicate: he suppresses the word signifying water, meaning it to be understood, (saying مِنْ رَصَفٍ for مِنْ مَآءِ رَصَفٍ, [but in both of my copies of the Ṣ, مَآءٍ is erroneously put for مَآءِ,]) and he calls its passing (مَسِيرَهُ [in the O and in one of my copies of the Ṣ مَسيلَهُ]) from رصف to رصف its contending therewith [i. e. with the latter رصف].
