طربل طرث طرح


R. Q. 2تَطَرْثَثَ

He gathered, or collected, the species of plants called طُرْثُوث. (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ.)

طَرْثٌ

Any plant (نَبَات, Ḳ [so in the TA and in my MṢ. copy of the Ḳ, in the CK بِناء, which is an evident mistranscription,]) that is fresh and juicy. (Ḳ.)

طِرْثٌ

The extremity of the بَظْر [q. v.]. (Ḳ.)
And Flaccidity, or flabbiness. (L.)

طُرْثُوثٌ

A species of plant, which is eaten; (Ṣ, Ḳ;) [app. a kind, or species, of fungus; perhaps a species of phallus;] a plant of the same kind as the ذُؤْنُون and the عُرْجُون; (IAạr, T in art. ذأن;) accord. to Lth, a slender, oblong plant, inclining to redness, and serving as a دِبَاغ to the stomach [app. meaning a stomachic], included among medicines, of which there is a bitter sort and a sweet sort; (Mṣb;) in the M said to be a plant of the sands, long and slender, similar to the فُطْر [q. v.], inclining to redness, which dries, and serves as a دِبَاغ to the stomach; n. un. with ة; on the authority of AḤn: it is of two sorts; one sweet, which is the red; and one bitter, which is the white; IAạr says that it is a plant of the length of a cubit, having no leaves, as though it were of the same kind as the truffle; (TA;) Az says that the طرثوث of the desert has no leaves (Mṣb, TA) nor any fruit, (TA,) grows in the sands (Mṣb, TA) and in the level grounds, (TA,) has in it no acidity, (Mṣb,) but a sweetness inclining to astringency and bitterness, and is red, with a round head, (Mṣb, TA,) like the glans of a man's penis: (TA:) [Ibn-Seenà (whom we call Avicenna), in his list of medicinal simples, (book ii., p. 183 of the printed ed.,) describes طَرَاثِيث as pieces of wood in a rotting state, of the thickness of a finger, and in length less and more, having an astringent taste, and dust-coloured; said to be brought from the desert. See also سُوقَةٌ.] The Arabs say, طَرَاثِيثُ لَا أَرْطَى لَهَا [Turthoothehs without artáhs]: because the former grow not save with the latter: a prov., like ذَآنِينُ لَا رِمْثَ لَهَا: applied to him who is ruined, and has nothing remaining, after having had ancestry and rank and wealth. (TA. [See also art. ذأن, last sentence.])
Also (tropical:) The glans of a man's penis: (Ḳ, TA:) so called as being likened to [the head of] the plant above described. (TA.)
