[Medler/ Medlar ?]

The Winter’s Tale, [4.4.315-323]. Autolycus. “Will you buy any tape,/ Or lace for your cape,/ My dainty duck, my dear-a?/ Any silk, any thread,/ And toys for your head,/ Of the new’st and fin’st, fin’st wear-a?/ Come to the pedlar;/ Money’s a medler,/ That doth utter all men’s ware-a.”
