شير شيز شيش


شِيزٌ

and شِيزَى A kind of black wood, of which bowls (قِصَاع) are made: (Ṣ, Ḳ:) or the latter is a certain black wood of which combs and bowls (جِفَان) are made: (Mgh:) or ebony: or سَاسَم [a certain wood of which bows or arrows are made]: (AA, Ḳ:) or walnut-wood: (Aṣ, EdDeenäwaree [AḤn], Mgh, Ḳ:) As says of the شيزى, by the name of which the Arabs call bowls (جفان and قصاع) and the sheaves of pulleys, that it is walnut-wood, but it becomes blackened by grease, and therefore is thus called, and it is not شيز: so says AḤn: and he adds, the case is as he has described it; for the شيز does not become thick so as that bowls may be carved from it: (Ṣgh, TA:) of this latter, only combs and the like are made; and it is black: it is also said, in the T, that bowls made from the walnut-tree are called شِيزَى. (TA.)
