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

dē-păciscor, v. dēpĕciscor.

dēpĕciscor, -pectus, or dēpăciscor, pactus, 3, v. dep. a. [de-paciscor], to bargain for, agree upon; and absol., to make an agreement.

Am. 39 fin.: cum illo partem suam depecisci, id. ib. 38, 110: aliquid cum aliquo, id. ib. 38, 110; cf.: depectus est cum eis, ut arma et impedimenta relinqueret, id. Inv. 2, 24, 72: ad condiciones alicujus, id. Verr. 2, 3, 24 fin.
