kusīdin कुसीदिन्

Definition: Is a designation of the ‘ usurer ’ iound in the śata­patha Brāhmana and the Nirukta, and often in the Sūtras. Jolly, referring doubtless to the expression kusīda apratītta,* a loan not yet repaid,’ occurring in connexion with an-rna, ‘ free from debt,’ appears to be right in taking Kusīda to have the sense of loan * in the Taittirīya Samhitā. The rate of interest on loans is not specified before the Sūtra period. Cf. Rna.
