āracayâracayā

[ā + √rac, but in another
meaning
+ ya], v. r. (pi-pāṭha) recorded by Buddha-
ghosa for the next, in the meaning of 'āviñjitvā āviñ-
jitvā' i. e. 'having pulled repeatedly'; jivhaṁ baḷisena
gahetvā ~ vihananti, Sn 673 (Pj II 482,2-3).
Rem. This difficult reading could be perh. also a
double form of
āra-cayā (from 1āra + √ci, caya
heap, collection, multitude), in the emphatic sense
of 'with many weapons'.
