A word employed in the Authorized Version to render two distinct Hebrew terms:
Ashishah, (2 Samuel 6:19; 1 Chronicles 16:3; Song of Solomon 2:5; Hosea 3:1) It really means a cake of pressed raisins. Such cakes were considered as delicacies; they were also offered to idols.
* See other occurrences of the same term: Flagon.
