n f. word of doubtful meaning, apparently some bright crimson or scarlet substance or material ; acc. to Stokes, IT iii 222 (folld. by Windisch TBC p. 28 n. 3 ), derived from Parthica (pellis) = Parthian leather dyed scarlet ; common in heroic lit. as a comparison for red lips and by editors somet. transld. `rowan-berries'; prob. the writers attached no very definite signification to the word beyond that of colour. The variants partaic (< Parthica?), partlaing, parluing and (in compd.) partar also occur.
