Greek - cock

COCK, n.

1. The male of birds, particularly of gallinaceous or domestic fowls, which having no appropriate or distinctive name, are called dunghill fowls or barn-door fowls.

3. A spout; an instrument to draw out or discharge liquor from a cask, vat or pipe; so named from its projection.
