'a divine and relicitous plant' (Karlgren)

Interesting question. This is a quotation from the Unihan database. What did Karlgren mean by "relicitous"? (And is this a separate sense, or a quotation for sense 2?) Robert Ullmann 13:42, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
Ah, is a scanno:
  • Bernhard Karlgren, Loan Characters in Pre-Han Texts, p91
reference to divine and felicitous, the quotation itself is from Analytic dictionary of Chinese and Sino-Japanese which I can't access through g.b.c. Now, which sense does it belong to? Probably the second, but without the text, I can't be sure. Robert Ullmann 13:50, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
