Ring-Streaked

is the rendering of the English Version ("ring-straked") of the Heb. עָקֹד, akod (Genesis 30; Genesis 31), as applied to the parti-colored rams of Jacob's flock. The Hebrew word literally means banded, or striped, and seems to refer especially to a variegation of color in the feet (Symmachus λευκόποδες, Saadias similarly).
