OCast alvanar L. alveus, water canal, 1. a large earthenware vat or basin for dishwashing especially pots and pans and kitchen utensils. Although not mentioned in Nola's surviving MS in Catalan, the Pérez edition of Nola relates to this basin in reference to the cook’s duties to insure that the kitchen is kept clean. 2. sewer drain, water canal, gutter or pipe through which rain water or dirty water from the home flows. One is mentioned in the city of Burgos in Alfonso XI’s (1348-1379) Chronicle but it seems to be bigger then just a household pipe or gutter. Hita’s use of the word could be interpreted to be either a washbasin or a gutter. [Covarrubias. 1998:66:31; ES: RAE. 2001; Gázquez.
