sionnach commented on the word robidilardic
In the French text, the word robidilardicque is footnoted as appearing as robilardique in some versions. The latter word seems more consistent with the coinage that duckbill suggests.

duckbill commented on the word robidilardic
Probably coined from rober (=derober) and lard, with an allusion to the great cat Robilardus (bacon-eater)."Moreover upon these grounds they have foisted in their Robidilardic, or Lapiturolive law." - Rabelais
