Parsing inflected forms may not always work as expected. If the following does not give the correct word, try Latin Words or Perseus.

  1. I. To devise tricks, use artifice, attack one with artifice, to intrigue against, to deceive (except in Sallust, only ante-class. for the class. calumnior): SI. CALVITVR. PEDEMVE.
