"salaputium" -> "salted skin of the dick"

Something very salted (see the salted fishes as an example) starts to
dry more quickly and to become smaller and smaller by eliminating the
liquids inside so I think that

"a salted skin of the dick" indicates a penis that can never arrive
in erection -> so an impotent man

In this case the meaning of:
"salaputium disertum" is=> [what] "an elloquent impotent"

quite 'a strong remark' ...

in that context this means "somebody that has tried to talk with a
great eloquence, but he is not able to say anything semnificative"
