strong drink. The hebrew {shecher}, Arabic {sakar} or {sukr} Greek [], from {shachar}, to inebriate, signifies any kind of fermented and inebriating liquor beside wine. So Jerome informs us, that {sciera} in Hebrew denotes any inebriating liquor, whether made of corn, the juice of apples, honey, dates, or any other fruit. These different kinds of liquors are described by Pliny, who calls then {vina factitia}. One of the four prohibited drinks among the Mohammedans in India is called {sakar}, which denotes inebriating liquor in general, but especially {date wine}.
