Posted by: estherklein (Esther Klein)I am fairly certain that 袤 is the wrong character. Yes, as Sun Yirang says, the meaning should be 姦邪 (though I myself would not emend the text). My Zhonghua shuju edition has a very similar-looking character, but it has 牙 rather than 矛 as the component. Bonus, the one with 牙 actually means 邪, so it's probably worth correcting. (My font set doesn't seem to have it, that I could find, but surely you have solved that.)

Posted by: the_duke (Ofer Waldman)Just checked it: According to all scanned resources in ctext, the digitized 袤 sign is indeed wrong and should be 衺 ( as you suggest. So the text should probably be fixed to match the scanned source.

Main scanned source (which I cannot find a way to identify) has 衺:

Same in the scanned 正統道藏 version:

The 墨子閒詁, Qing's Sun yirang edition scanning from Peking Uni is low quality, but in both main text and comments it seems to be a variant of 衺 based on the variant shown in :

Same variant in the scanned 摛藻堂四庫全書薈要 version from Zhejiang Uni:

Same variant in the scanned 四部叢刊初編 version:

The rest of the scanned Mozi resources doesn't have the relevant test in them.
