〔古文〕𤼩【唐韻】居誄切【集韻】【韻會】頸誄切【正韻】古委切,𠀤規上聲。十幹之末。【說文】冬時水土平,可揆度也。【正韻】癸者,歸也。於時爲冬,方在北,五行屬水,五運屬火。【史記·律書】癸之爲言,揆也。言萬物可揆度也。【前漢·律歷志】𨻰揆于癸。 又歲月日名。【爾雅·釋天】太歲在癸曰昭陽。月在癸曰極。【禮·月令】孟冬之月,其日壬癸。【註】日之行,東北從黑道,閉藏萬物,月爲之佐,時萬物懷任于下,揆然萌芽,又因以爲日名焉。 又呼庚癸,軍中隱語也。【左傳·哀十三年】吳申叔儀乞糧于公孫有山氏,對曰:若登首山以呼曰庚癸乎,則諾。【註】庚,西方主穀。癸,北方主水。【疏】軍中不得出糧與人,故作隱語爲私期也。 又天癸,天乙所生之癸水。【黃帝素問】女子二七,而天癸至。【方書】男之精,女之血,先天得之以成形,後天得之以有生,故曰天癸。 又姓。【姓苑】出齊癸公,後宋癸仲知嚴州軍。 【說文】本作癸,象水从四方流入地中之形。癸承壬,象人足。【六書正譌】交錯二木,度地以取平也。義同準。篆从二木,象形。因聲借爲壬癸字。隸別作癸揆楑,𠀤通。
