saketur (1267)


[FEW: ; Gdf: 7,274a sacheteur; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF:  sacqueteur; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
sachator;  sakator,  sakatur,  saketor,  sçacatur,  seketur  

While the text’s most recent editor suggests the term should be considered an aphetic form of executur, and is unrelated to the verb ( saker) which follows in the next line, it seems possible that the term, like the verb, as the DMF suggests, is derived from saccus ('sack, bag'). The sense of ‘treasurer’ is attested in both Gdf (sacquetier 2,277a) and the DMF ( sacquetier), which the DMF believes is synonymous with saqueteur.
