Translation:

Sitaregum is what Stephanus writes for {Arabic} sceitaregi, which is lepidum {“garden-cress; pepperwort”} in Latin, et cetera.


Commentary:

This is Stephanus’ latinised version of Arabic ﺳﻴﻄﺮﺝ /sīṭarağ/, ﺷﻴﺘﺮﺝ /šītarağ/ or ﺷﻴﻄﺮﺝ /šīṭarağ/. For further information on these forms see Simon’s entry Sceitaragi.


Stephanus in his Breviarium writes: lepidiõ … sitaregũ [[1]].


Botanical identification: See Lepidum.
