portice (s.xii1/3)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 9,224a porticus; Gdf: 6,336a postic (portice); GdfC: 10,383a portique; TL: ; DEAF:  porte (portique) / porte (portiz); DMF:  portique 2; TLF:  portique; OED:  portic n.; MED: ; DMLBS: 2355a porticus ]
portic,  portis,  portiz  

Some confusion with porte1 (‘door, gate’) and postiz1 (‘postern, wicket, gate’) seems possible, especially in case of the Purg S Pat2 citation. Gdf includes portice solely as a variant spelling of postic (‘poterne et aussi arcade ou portique à front de rue donnant accès à une avant-cour’, 6,336a) which seems unlikely, as the word derives from a different etymon.
