ginger Ja.i.244 (˚singivera).
cp. Sk. ārdraka

- -āvalepana “smeared with moisture”, i.e. shiny, glittering SN.iv.187 (kūṭāgāra); MN.i.86 = Cnd.199#6 (upakāriyo) See also addha2.
The reading allāvalepana occurs at Cnd.40 (= SN.iv.187), and is perhaps to be preferred. The meaning is better to be given as “newly plastered.”
