[meaning A broad, or wide, head of a thistle or the like]. (TA.) And رَأْسٌ مُفَلْطَحٌ means A broad, or wide, head; as also
إِذَا ضَنُّوا عَلَيْهِ بَالمُفَلْطَحَةِ, occurring in a trad., is expl. by El-Khaṭṭábee as meaning [If they be niggardly, to him, of] the expanded cake of bread: and it is also expl. as meaning the dirhems [or money]: (TA:) or the phrase [accord. to one relation] is إِذَا ضَنُّوا عَلَيْكَ بِالمُطَلْفَحَةِ, in which both of the meanings above mentioned are assigned to the last word.
