Lewis & Short

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

excepto, āvi, ātum, 1, v. freq. a. [excipio], to take out, to take up, catch (very rare): barbatulos nullos exceptans de piscina, * Cic. Par. 5, 2, 38; so, aliquem, * Caes. B. G. 7, 47 fin.: (equae) exceptant leves auras, catch up., i. e. snuff up, * Verg. G. 3, 274; cf. poet.: per pectora saevas Exceptat mortes, * Sil. 9, 369.
