قُلْقَاسٌ

[The colocasia; or arum. colocasia of Linnæus: or its root:] the root of a certain plant, which is eaten cooked, (AḤn, Ḳ,) and used medicinally: (AḤn:) the decoction thereof increases the venereal faculty, and fattens; but the taking it constantly engenders black bile. (AḤn, Ḳ.) [See De Sacy's “ Relation de l'Egypte par Abd-allatif, ” pp. 94 — 98.]
