Unidentified hanzi in 魏志倭人傳

Recommended Posts


Okay, annoying problem time.

I'm doing some work on the 魏志倭人傳, and there's a hanzi that I can't identify.

In this image, I've indicated the problem. It's a list of gifts from the queen of Wo to the emperor of China.

Any ideas? I apprciate all the help I can get.

Thanks, guys. I was going crazy trying to find this:


when I should have been looking for

I can't believe that radical problem I was having. As I think about it, it was majorly stupid not to look for an online text to get the hanzi just to be sure. Man, I really need to get more coffee in me. I don't care WHAT my doctor says. ;)


Even more frustrating, I just found a reference that the hanzi is actually this:

犭 + 付

so I really have to wonder. Damn. I want a Morohashi.

Thanks again!!
