peine2 (s.xii/xiii)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 8,101a pecten; Gdf: ; GdfC: 10,304b peigne; TL: 7,548 peigne; DEAF:  peigne; DMF:  peigne; TLF:  peigne; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 2160b pecten ]
peigne,  pene,  penie;  peyne;  pigne;  pyne,  pyngne; 
pl. peynis,  pynde  iv 221  

The definition ‘kind of fish, plaice’ is suggested by the DMLBS as sense 3 sub pecten. However, pecten is the genus name of ‘scallops’ (which was the definition preferred in AND1 sub peine3). It is impossible in the context of these Port Books to determine exactly which commodity is referred to, and both senses are therefore included (cf. FEW pecten 8,103b: ‘coquille de Saint-Jacques’ and ‘poisson du genre gobie’).
