AnWulf commented on the word doven
@sionnach ... I think you meant "was likened" or maybe you mean "is likened"? I've never heard a hot water bottle called a bedoven but if it burst then you might be bedoven in hot water! The comparison was doven to bedoven. Bedoven is the past participle of the archaic bedive.
