kaṭṭhaka

, m., bamboo (= veḷu; ct. so); phalāni
~assêva attaghaññāya phallati, Dhp 164 (sa ca pāpikā
diṭṭhi veḷusaṅkhātassa ~assa [so read with v.l.; Ee
kaṭṭhassa] phalāni viya hoti, tasmā yathā ~o phalāni
gaṇhanto attaghaññāya phallati attano ghātattham
eva phaleti, Dhp-a III 156,18); — Rem.: there is
reason to believe that the reading ~ at
Dhp 164 is a
mistake for
1kaṇṭaka (q.v.), presumably through the
misspelling
kaṇṭhaka; cf. the parallel at Uv VIII 7:
kaṇṭakaveṇur vā; 1kaṇṭaka is recorded in sa. lex. lit.
in the sense of "bamboo"; v.
G-Dhp ad 258.[[side 46]]
