كُمْتَةٌ [A dark bay colour:] a red colour mixed with blackness: (Kh, Sb:) or a red colour mixed with قُنُوْء, (Aṣ, Ṣ, Ḳ,) which latter is blackness that is not pure, or clear: (see كُمَيْتٌ:) or a colour between black and red: (ISd:) there are two kinds of كمتة; namely كُمْتَةُ صُفْرَةٍ [yellow bay, or gilded bay,] and كُمْتَةُ حُمْرَةٍ [red bay, or chestnut-bay]. (IAạr.)
كُمَيْتٌ, masc. and fem., (Ṣ, Ḳ,) [A bay, or dark bay, or brown, horse &c.:] of a red colour mixed with blackness: (Kh, Sb:) or of a red colour mixed with قُنُوْء, (Aṣ, Ṣ, Ḳ,) which latter is blackness that is not pure, or clear: (TA [app. from Aṣ]:) [see كُمْتَةٌ, above:] a camel is called أَحْمَرُ if of an unmixed red; but if of a red colour mixed with قنوء, it is called كميت: (Aṣ, Ṣ:) the difference between كميت and أَشْقَرُ, as applied to horses, is in the mane and the tail: if these are red, the animal is called اشقر [i. e. sorrel]; and if they are black, it is called كميت; (AO, Ṣ, TA;) and the وَرْد is between these two: (AO, TA:) [all bay horses have black manes, which distinguish them from the sorrel, that have red or white manes: (Farrier's Dict., quoted in Johnson's Dict., voce “bay”:)] an epithet applied to the horse and the camel and other animals: (ISd:) you say فَرَسٌ كميتٌ, and مُهْرَةٌ كميتٌ, and بَعِيرٌ كميتٌ, and نَاقَةٌ كميتٌ: (TA:) accord. to the Kh, as cited by Sb, it is of the dim. form because it denotes a colour between black and red, as though to imply that it signifies what is near to each of these two colours. (Ṣ.) In a marginal note in the Ṣ, it is said to be a foreign word arabicized. (TA.) [Perhaps from the Persian كُمِيَ۫هْ: Freytag says, accord. to some from the Persian كُميته.] See also أَكْمَتُ, and كُمْتَةٌ. The Arabs say, that the كميت is the most powerful of horses, and the strongest in the hoofs. (TA.)
