Catussada (catussada): full of four, endowed with 4 things, rich in four attributes J. IV, 309 (expld. p. 311 as having plenty of people, grain, wood & water); IV, 422=461 “with four pillows” (p. 422 has caturassada for caturussada, which latter is also to be preferred to catussada, unless this is a haplology). In the same connection occurs satt-ussada (full of people) D. I, 111 e.g. & Pv IV. 18 (see satta). The formation “cattussada” has probably been influenced by “sattussada”;
