poitrun (c.1250)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 9,245b posterio; Gdf: 6,261c poitron; GdfC: ; TL: 7,1354 poistron; DEAF:  poistron; DMF:  poitron; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 2363a posterior ]
poistrun;  poiteron,  poitron,  poitroun;  poytron,  poytroun,  poytrun  

The FEW suggests that Classical Latin posterior produced the noun posterio in Late Latin (not documented by the DMLBS), with the specific sense of ‘anus’. The vernacular word derives from the declined root (genitive posterionis).
