SAPOR, an a SAPUS
quod ab ὀπός? dixerunt autem Veteres ὁπὸν: seu sapum aut sapam, humorem illum arborum, qui vere ac autumnô abundat: an potius ab ὀπόρ? Sane Sapor, h. e. ἡ γεῦσις, ex succo et humore. Unde Saporem pro succo aliquando posuêre. Tibullus, l. 4. El. 4. v. 9.
------ Tecumque feras quicumque sapores,
Quicumque et cantus corpora fessa levant, etc.
Horum octo genera, Aristotelem et Theophrastum sequutus Avicenna Tom. l. p. 117. sic enumerat: 1. τὴν γλυκύτητα, dulcedinem. 2. τὴν πικρότητα, amaritudinem. 3. τὴν δριμύτητα, acrimoniam. 4. τὴν ὀξύτητα, acisalsedinem. 5. τὴν ςτρυφνότητα, acerbitatem. 6. τὸ ἁλμυρὸν, salsum. 7. το αὐςτηρὸν, austerum. 8. τὴν λιπαρότητα, pinguedinem. Quorum singulis suas figuras Democritum astruxisse, et salso e. g. angulosam, aliis aliam, tribuisse, adnotat Salmas. ad Solin. p. 1284.
