So says AḤát; and he adds, What is termed مصرع [evidently, I think, a mistranscription for مُضَرِّعٌ,] is what becomes thick, or coagulated, and almost thoroughly cooked: عاقد is that of which the water has gone, and which is thoroughly cooked: كَرِيص is that which is cooked with نَهْق or حَمَصِيص: مَصْل is a kind of اقط cooked again: and ثَوْر is a great piece of it.
