properly ";a bed of garden herbs,"; or ";of leeks"; (if derived from πράσον) : cf. BGU II. 530.27 (i/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 62) μόλις γὰρ μίαν πρασεὰν ποτίζι τὸ ὕδωρ, ";for there is hardly a single plot which the water irrigates."; In the colloquial πρασιαὶ πρασιαί of Mark 6:40 the reference is to regularity of arrangement rather than to variety of colouring : Hesych. πρασιαί · αἱ ἐν τοῖς κήποις τετράγωνοι λαχανιαί. For the reiteration πρασιαὶ πρασιαί (cf. also Mark 6:7; Mark 6:39) see Proleg. p. 97 and Headlam’s note to Herodas IV. 61 θερμὰ θερμὰ πηδεῦσαι. A Rabbinic explanation of Mark 6:40 will be found in Exp. VIII. vii. p. 89 f.
