sosita : (pp. of soseti) caused to dry or wither.

Sosīta, at J. I, 390 means either “thoroughly chilled” or “well wetted. ” It is explained as “him’odakena su-sīto suṭṭhu tinto. ” Perhaps we have to read so sīta, or sīna (cp. sīna2), or sinna. The corresponding sotatta (explained as “suriya-santāpena su-tatto”) should then be so tatto. (Page 727)
