rubin (s.xiii2)


[ FEW: 10,535b rubeus; Gdf: ; GdfC: 10,598b rubis; TL: 8,1528 rubin; DEAF:  rubi (rubin, rubine); DMF:  rubin 2; TLF: ; OED:  rubine n. and a.; MED: ; DMLBS: 2862b rubinus ]

The sense of ‘rust, blight’ is not found anywhere else, nor has it any etymological grounding other than an association with the colour ‘red’ of runinus. The name of the disease is normally ruil1 in Anglo-Norman or rubigo in Latin (DMLBS 2862b).
