Ars coquinaria Mexicana: embammata viride et rubrum (salsa verde, salsa roja)
Conditurae Francicae: Embamma gribiche (sauce gribiche) iuxta fercula e capite vitulino in popina oppidi Saint-Cyprien-sur-Dourdou inlatum

Embamma[1] (-atis, n.; Graece ἔμβαμμα) sive intinctus[2] est conditura quae iuxta ferculum in mensam infertur ut comedentes ofellas vel frusta ciborum eae intingant. Embammata modis distinctis in arte coquinaria variarum regionum adhibentur.

De embammatibus ab Asia in Europam saeculo XVIII ineunte importatis haec scripsit Carolus Lockyer mercator: "Soia in cupis e Iaponia, kecap optimum e Tonchino advehuntur, sed bona cuiusque generis parvo pretio apud Sinas conficiuntur venundanturque. Nullum emas nisi correctum sit, id quod apud mercatores potius quam tabernarios reperies. Statim deprehendas, in lagoenas mittas ... Nullam rem provectiorem scio".[3]

  3. Soy comes in tubs from Jappan, and the best ketchup from Tonqueen, yet good of both sorts are made and sold very cheap in China. Buy none but what is right, which you are likelier to meet with among the merchants than shop-keepers ... draw it off immediately, and secure it in bottles ... I know not a more profitable commodity.
