), a frying-pan (Juv. 10.63
), “a strepitu soni vocata quando
in ea ardet oleum” (Isid. 20.8); the oil being used for frying,
as we use butter or fat. In Pliny (Plin. Nat.
) it is used for melting resin. The shape of a sartago which
has been found at Pompeii is exactly like that of a modern frying-pan (see
iv. tav. 12; Guhl and Koner, 2.188). For the
Greek equivalent, see Athen. vi. pp. 228, 229.
