[In this sense, زَلْخٌ is said in the A to be tropical: app. because it is an inf. n. used as an epithet.]) It is also applied to a well (رَكِيَّة), meaning Smooth and slippery at its top [or mouth], so that he who stands upon it slips into it; (TA;) and soزَلُوخٌ↓, (Ṣ, TA,) and زَلُوجٌ. (TA.)

* مِنْ مَائَةٍ زَلْخٍ بِمِرِّيخٍ غَالْ *
[app. meaning From a hundred fathoms, a limit, or an extreme limit, to which one shoots with a long four-feathered arrow rising in its flight so as to exceed the usual limit; from three hundred to four hundred cubits being said to be the limit, or extreme limit, to which an arrow is shot; and غَالْ being used by poetic license for غَالٍ]: (Ṣ:) or, accord. to ADk, زلخ here signifies the furthest limit to which an arrow is shot by him who endeavours to shoot it to the utmost distance: or, accord. to Lth, the raising the hand, or arm, in shooting an arrow to the furthest possible distance: so says Az; who adds that he had not heard this last explanation on any other authority than that of Lth, but hoped it might be correct. (L, TA.) [See also زَلْجٌ.]

Also ‡ A pain that attacks in the back, (A, Ḳ,) which consequently becomes hard, or rigid, and rough, (Ḳ,) depriving one of the power of motion (A, Ḳ) by reason of its violence: (A:) and some pronounce the word زُلَخَةٌ↓, without teshdeed to the ل; and some, erroneously, with ج: (TA:) or it is a disease that attacks in the back and the side: (ISd, TA:) [andزُلَّخٌ↓ appears to signify the same, or to be a coll. gen. n.: for] AA cites the following verse:
* وَصِرْتُ مِنْ بَعْدِ القَوَامِ أَبْزَخَا **وَزَلَّخَ↓ الدَّهْرُ بِظَهْرِى زُلَّخَا *
